  1. I believe that the decision to add Ukrainian localisation would be more than right, as Ukrainian is the eighth most widely spoken language in Europe, and this summer the popular Ukrainian streamer Leb1ga reached a record 34878 views, which is a definite sign of the relevance and usefulness of adding Ukrainian localisation to Twitch. May the Ukrainian Twitch community flourish!

  2. There are some YouTubers which would prefer twitch as a streaming platform but fear that their community will not find them when they have to switch their names. Since twitch doesn't allow "ä", "ö" and "ü" in their creator names those with these letters in their names get discriminated.

    Thank you very much

  3. It's been a while since Twitch has become a mass service used here in Catalonia. For years, different users have asked if it would be possible to have the Twitch app available in Catalan, our language.

    It's not hard to have the desktop apps (Win, Mac, Linux, Web) and the mobile apps (Android, iOS, Windows Phone...) translated into Catalan. A lot of other services and apps have included Catalan years ago (services and products from Google, Apple, Microsoft, Mozilla... already include it).

    We understand that Twitch has enough resources to translate their apps and services to Catalan. Why Belgians, Canadians…

  4. Please add a German language option which does not use Gender language (you can leave current German option as default).

    Or use the generic masculinum and add (m/w/d) at the end.

    Gender language disrupts reading flow and is not including everyone, e.g.

    Kolleg*innen

    This does not include males since the word Kolleg does not exist in that context.

  6. Around 110 million people speak Farsi worldwide and in Iran alone, there are more than 28 million gamers according to a national survey.

    There are many Farsi speaking streamers on the site and I'm sure Twitch knows about the number of people using the website within Iran (even though many use VPNs almost all the time to be able to access many websites next to watching twitch). As many have said before, not having the option for the language of the stream is hurtful for all the viewers of the website. No one uses the "Other" language option to find…

  8. Why has Twitch Dev Removed "Persian" or "Farsi" from the language choices. How can we have that back? Feels slightly discriminatory.

  11. Add Georgian Language on Twitch. I know there's only around 100,000 Users on Twitch from Georgia but it would be so cool if Twitch will have Georgian language on the platform.

    If there's no one that can help to do this, Hit me up ;)
    I can translate Twitch to Georgian Language.

  12. Ukraine has a ~40M population, of which, according to the last census, 67,5% consider Ukrainian their mother tongue.

    Ukraine has a vibrant gaming community. Ukrainian eSports teams (go NaVi!) are some of the most successful and competitive in the world.

    Valve added Ukrainian language option to Steam in 2013 and since then the number of Ukrainian Steam players (and Steam games that have a Ukrainian localization) has been steadily increasing. According to SteamSpy, as of June 2016 there were 3.7M Ukrainian players in Steam. (source: http://steamspy.com/country/UA )

    Given the above mentioned arguments, we, the Ukrainian gaming community, ask of you…

    Investigating  ·  Twitch responded

    Hey all!

    So sorry that this was closed in the past. Not entirely sure why we closed this in 2019, but I am opening it back up for you guys to vote and comment on while we investigate adding this to the site.

    Thank you so much for your continued feedback and patience with us on this request.
