  1. The Spanish translation for "While X is offline", at the main page, says "Mientras X está desconectado". This last word is masculine, making the phrase inaccurate for non-masculine streamers.
    I think, in order to be more inclusive, the correct phrase should be something like "Mientras X no tiene conexión" or "Mientras X no está en directo", avoiding words that depend on the streamer's gender identity.
    I didn't see this kind of mistake anywhere else, but I think this should be revised in general.

  2. 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…

  3. The Romanian translation for the most used word on this website is very odd and difficult to understand: "Redare in flux". You could keep it as "stream" or "live" or use something like "transmisiune".

  4. English: "# Channel Points awarded to # viewer(s)"
    Korean: "시청자 #명님에게 보생으로 # 채널 포인트를 드렸습니다"

    There is a translation error in Korean at the streamer's dashboard > Predictions.
    It hasn't been fixed since long time ago.

    "보생" must be fixed to "보상" as "awarded"`s translation.
    And "~님" is also awkward for Korean.

    I suggest "시청자 #명에게 보상으로 # 채널 포인트를 드렸습니다"

  5. Hello, I am audit(name subject to change). I am someone who currently resides in the USA and will be moving soon to Israel. I'd love to have it as an option for the additional immersion and to have some inclusivity for the Israeli people and Hebrew language. It would be nice to have twitch itself in Hebrew, along with a tag to search for people who speak the language! Thanks!

  6. "Unmodded" tag is translated as "Χωρίς εποπτεία", as you can see here https://www.twitch.tv/directory/all/tags/532af76e-eabd-451e-9709-cd1cc7653edb which means "without moderator/supervision" in the Greek language.

    However, on this page, https://www.twitch.tv/directory/all/tags is described as "For streams that feature gameplay from an unmodified version of a game".

    My suggestion is to change it from "Χωρίς εποπτεία" to "Χωρίς τροποποιήσεις", which means "without modifications".

  7. The green pill that says "SAVE" in the "Save by subscribing for logger" dialog.
    In Finnish version this is mistranslated as "TALLENNA" (as in "save file"). It should be "SÄÄSTÄ" (as in "save money")

  8. A tradução da área que mostra a última transmissão realizada, na página do canal, está incorreta.

    Exemplo: https://imgur.com/a/qkqtkE0

    O "de" impede a presença do "há" no texto.

    Sugestões de correção:

    • "Confira essa transmissão de [categoria] de 4 dias atrás"; ou

  9. You give us the option of choosing our language. Why do you use another language (not even English) when sending us an e-mail (billing, payment notice, etc.) ? Please use the language we chose or, if not possible, English).

  10. Every single time when I'm on a new pc and I want to log into Twitch I need to receive a verification code to be able to log in. I'm from Belgium and I live in the Flemish-speaking (Dutch) part. This SMS however is always in French. The majority of the people speak Dutch in Belgium and everything else on Twitch is in either Dutch or English.

  11. The message says "Det har vært gitt ut [number] gaveabonnement i kanalen!" This translates to "There has been given out [number] gift subscriptions in the channel!" This reads as if the number is the total for all users, not just the user currently gifting.

    I suggest changing it to ""De har gitt ut [number] gaveabonnement i kanalen!", translating to "They have given out [number] gift subscriptions in the channel!"

  12. Most of Indonesians are cant speak / read English very well. To solve this problem, I want you to add Bahasa. That would help our community to grow up. Thank you.

  13. The Malaysian "Malay" language is very much different to Bahasa Indonesia, even though it has its similarities, are very much culturally and phonetically different that it could cause confusion if I were to label my streams as Bahasa Indonesia. Furthermore, Singaporean Malay also refer to their native language as "Malay", so I dont see why not adding the Malay language in the stream info setting.

    Otherwise you could instead rename the "Bahasa Indonesia" tag as "Bahasa" instead of "Bahasa Indonesia" and basically combine them since the Malay language is also called "Bahasa Melayu" in its native language, but this is…

  14. The last 2 years, broadcasts in the Kazakh (Qazaq/Казахский/Qazaqşa) language are gaining popularity on YouTube.
    For example (March 2022):
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sJx_4kwWNvM - 1600+ live peak viewers
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HVQBykqCPZg - 2000+ live peak viewers
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OHtXj6DDlKQ - 800+ live peak viewers

    Kazakh is now only available on YouTube, so mostly Influencers choose this platform. Although many of the viewers follow the broadcasts on Twitch, as the many CIS esports competitions are broadcast there. Also, there are Twitch streamers who broadcast in Kazakh in the Russian category

    In the filters there is the country of Kazakhstan, but no Kazakh language.

    Goal #1 is to add…

  15. Please just add more language categories. It is not hard to type out a few more words to make a world of difference to Twitch users around the world.

    So many promising streamers are locked under "Language: Other", which doesn't let them get the recognition that they deserve and would receive in their own language community.

  16. When you extend a subscription somebody else gifted to you, you get the notification "abc verlängert sein Geschenkabo von xyz". Since there is no way to select pronouns anywhere on twitch and thus impossible to read "...verlängert IHR Geschenkabo...", it'd be nice to simply have "...verlängert DAS Geschenkabo...".

  17. When publishing a vod by hand in the stream manager tab a popup says "Dadurch wird es für die Öffentlichkeit unzugänglich", which means the exakt opposite of publishing something. If something is "unzugänglich" noone has access to it.

    Seems to be a translation error.

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

  19. • Wherever the word ‘Spórolj’ appears in the settings in Hungarian, it should be ‘Mentés’, because ‘Mentés’ is the right word for saving something which has been change — like a setting. (‘Spórolj’ means saving money.)

    • The word/expression ‘Legjobb pillanatok’ stands for best moments, but this button is for creating a highlight. Therefore the right word in Hungarian is ‘Kiemelés’. (The word ‘Kiemelés’ has already been in use on the Twitch platform for many years before.)

  20. I found a translation error in the creator dash.
    When I edit my social media links the button for 'save' is translated to 'besparen' which means 'to save money' in Dutch. The correct translation here would be "Opslaan"
