  1. The "Counter-Strike" category is still called "Counter-Strike Global Offensive" (カウンターストライク グローバルオフェンシブ) despite it being changed to encapsulate both CS:GO and CS2. Rename it to "カウンターストライク" to match English category name.

    This category does not have a match on IGDB as it contains 2 different games, which is why this is not posted in the IGDB forum

  2. 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. There are several languages that do not have the option to be selected in the "Stream Language". This means that viewers do not have the option to filter and find streams in those languages.

    We need minority languages ​​to also have their place to be able to create content in these languages.

    I would like to ask "EUSKARA" (official language of the Basque country) as an option in "Stream Language".

  5. In Dutch language, in the translation for the affiliate anniversary (ENG:

    PartyHat Happy Affiliate Anniversary!) the emote PartyHat is translated into Feestmuts (DUTCH: Feestmuts Gefeliciteerd met je Affiliate-jubileum).

    Feestmuts would be the correct translation for PartyHat, but the emote only works with the English term (and translation in other languages has the PartyHat emote).

    The same error might also be in other celebration messages (like partner anniversary).

  6. I'm using Twitch in Swedish, primarily for the Swedish formats since English (Sweden) isn't an option.

    But there are some improper formats on the analytic screen, and this issue is likely happening to several other languages, and is likely due to hardcoded functions. By resolving these issues, these are not only resolved for Swedish, but also for several other languages.
    https://dashboard.twitch.tv/u/USERNAME/analytics

    When you press on the date-banner at the top to change the date, the date-pickers are displaying with Sunday first, which is quite confusing to look at since Sweden is always Monday first. This calendar should reflect the locale…

  7. In Norwegian, when you click on "Bla gjennom" - > "Kategorier" -> "{game}" (Browse -> Category -> {game} in English) there is a highlighted stream running at the top. The button of which to watch the stream says "Følg strømmen" which translates to "Follow the stream". The word "Følg" is also used by Twitch to actually follow the stream, so it is very confusing. In English Twitch the "Følg strømmen" is "Join Stream", which makes alot more sense. You should find a better translation in Norwegian, like "Se på" (Watch), "Se på strømmen" (Watch the stream) or "Bli med" (Join).

  8. Today there was a stream on https://www.twitch.tv/worldoftanks/ which rewarded twitch watchers with drops. Unfortunately the stream went live between 3am and 6am Eastern Australian Time.

    Why not make this steam VOD so everyone in the world including families and kids can watch it at a sensible hour?

  9. Twitch uses data from IGDB, but there are some errors where this data isn't applied properly. IGDB uses the North American (NA) title by default, and has the European title as the alternative, even in situations where the European title is the original or matching the original better.

    • The schedule on twitch.tv uses the NA title regardless of locale selected. Both the small item of the schedule, as well as when you click on it to expand it. But the cover used is localised.

    • The video producer on dashboard.twitch.tv use the NA title regardless of locale, when you edit a…

  10. 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.

  11. Currently, the title of the classification label in Finnish reads as "Tarkoitettu tietynlaiselle yleisölle" which translates as "Intended for a certain kind of audience". I'd propose using the translation "Tarkoitettu rajoitetuille yleisöille" which translates back into English as "Intended for limited audiences." There is a difference of tone and meaning, but most importantly the plural form of the original "Intended for certain audiences" is conserved.

  12. As a Galician streamer I love to watch other galician streamers. But twitch plataform don't allow me to set that my videos are in Galego because I can't specify that I'm streaming in Galego. I must choose: "Others".

    This situation creates a problem for at least 3.000.000- 4 million people that speak galician because we have no easy method to find videos/streams in our language.

    For that reason, We will really appreciate that twitch adds Galician (Galego) language as an option on Language settings of Live Streams.

    NOTE: that we are not asking to translate the whole platform. We only…

  13. When hovering over a linked streamer in the title of a stream the word Streaming is translated as Atrømmer instead of Strømmer. Strømmer is the correct translation.

  14. When editing a goal, the option "End Goal" has mistakenly been translated as a single noun "Slutmål" (such as: what's the 'end goal'?) instead of the intended verb "Avsluta mål".

  15. The traditional Chinese translation for the term 'DropsEnabled' is '啟用掉寶', but the current display shows '启用掉宝' which is simplified Chinese instead of traditional Chinese.

    And also, there are many texts in simplified Chinese characters in your customer service feedback menu. Please check your text errors.

  16. In very recent news, Twitch has not been complying with the overly strict requirements of censorship required by the site to run in Russia.

    Twitch has been fined now multiple times. Twitch within a month.
    It is easy for us all to see that you will not bend the knee and start censoring the streamers on your platform. However, it's also easy to see this situation won't end anytime soon.

    I think it's wrong to blanket ban Russian streamer and delete their content. Obviously. We have to preserve that history for once the war ends.

    However, the site being allowed…

  17. In the danish translation of twitch the chat slow-mode notification is "Du kan chatte i X sekunder", and it has to be "Du kan chatte om X sekunder". It seems kinda weird to me...

  18. The german localization titles the sub gifter badge as "Person, die das Abonnement verschenkt" which equates to "person who gifts the sub" in english. This sounds very unnatural. Closer to the english "sub gifter" would be something along the lines of "Abo-Verschenker". Another more natural alternative would also be "Person, die ein Abo verschenkt hat" which translates to "person who has gifted a sub".

  19. Creo que añadir un algoritmo de traducción automática en diferentes idiomas ayudaría a ciertas personas con discapacidad auditiva y a la vez a personas que no entienden algún idioma en concreto pero que pueda gustarles el tipo de contenido de otros creadores que no son de su idioma natal, añadiendo unos subtítulos que aunque a veces el algoritmo no sea exacto en su traducción por la pronunciación del creador, pero pueda facilitar el entendimiento en su mayoría. Ayudaría en bastantes casos y además facilitaría a todos los creadores de contenido a crecer su comunidad con personas que son de otros…
