  1. Many languages don't appear in "Stream Language" options, meaning that viewers don't have the ability to filter and find streams in those languages, which is especially important for minority languages like Cornish (Kernewek).

    Minority languages ​​must be supported on Twitch alongside bigger language as the support is more important to them. Please add Cornish/Kernewek, the language of Cornwall/Kernow, as an option in "Stream Language".

  4. Malayalam is the language used by people of Kerala, a southern state of the country India. Malayalam is the official language of Kerala, which is a state with 3.46 crores population (as of 2018).

    Many streamers from Kerala are now a part of Twitch.tv streaming community. Viewers from Kerala have also started increasing day by day. But, it is so hard for a new twitch.tv user to find Malayalam talking streamers.
    It will be good for us Malayalis, aka Keralites, if Twitch adds Malayalam as a language.

    Thank you team for your continued support. Hope this suggestion will be considered.…

  6. What's wrong:
    Norwegian translation,
    when you hover over a user that has been subbed for nine months it says "9-årsabonnent", which means 9 years subscriber.

    år = year

    Solution:
    Correct translation should be "9-måneders abonnent"

  8. Hey everyone!

    I'm located in Ukraine and got registered in Twitch some time ago.
    Since Twitch does not have Ukrainian localization yet I had to choose English one instead.

    Luckily there is a petition to add Ukrainian locale here:
    https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/924619-localization/suggestions/43430019-add-ukrainian-localization-please

    Nevertheless, when I logged in to my Twitch account today, I got an email notification in Russian, so I had to translate it to understand it well.

    I don't know why it happened but I would like to receive notifications either based on my location (Ukraine - in Ukrainian) or based on my profile language (English and when Ukrainian will…

    Hi all!

    Could you please answer a few questions:

    1. What was the language you chose when you created your account?
    2. Have you changed your preferred language at all since then or recently?
    3. Is this the first time you’ve received an email in your non-preferred language, or has it always been sending emails in Russian?
    4. To be clear, if you click on your profile picture, and under “Language”, you have “English” chosen, but are receiving Russian emails?

    Edit:
    5. What is the language you have selected on https://help.twitch.tv?

  9. Greetings!

    I would like to ask you about adding Belarusian localization and language tag to Twitch.

    Why?
    Because Belarus-speaking community grows every year, and more and more companies are ready to acknowledge that. Among those companies you can find Google, Apple and more.
    Therefore, it would be great if Amazon would join'em in this and add Belarusian language on Twitch. It also will be a great chance to support freedom in our country in nowadays hard situation.
    That would be a big win for our society. Żywie Biełaruś!
    If you need help in translation- just contact me on tetragon444@gmail.com.…

  10. The german translation of the slow chat is wrong.

    "Benutzer können 10 Mal pro Sekunde Nachrichten senden." translates to 'Users may send 10 messages every second.' instead of 'Users may send messages every 10 seconds.'

  11. "Sørlige" is not a word in danish... I guess you mean "særlige" because that translates to "special". That being said I do not know what the word actually is supposed to be, as I have not seen the English edition of twitch in that category before. The only thing i do know, is that sørlige is not a word.

  12. En la mayor parte de Latinoamérica, si alguien dice "antier" lo quedan mirando raro. Debería ser cambiado por "anteayer". No sé que estaba fumando el que sugirió usar "antier", pero se ve horrible y sólo me hace querer cambiar de lenguaje a Español de España o Inglés. Así mismo, "Seguiste a" no toma en cuenta el tiempo verbal de "Followed" y "Banear" es con una sola "n" desde hace mucho tiempo.

  13. As an Asturian user I love to watch asturian streamers. But Twitch plataform don't allow me to set that my videos are in Asturian because I can't specify that I'm streaming in Asturian I must choose: "Others".

    This situation creates a problem for at least 600,000 people that speak Asturian because we have no easy method to find videos/streams in our language.

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

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

  15. Twitch please add Azerbaijani language as an option to stream. There are around 40 million Azerbaijanis in the world. Quite often I find my compatriots watching streams of worldwide famous streamers or Turkish streamers. All of my compatriots choose Turkish language as a streaming language for their broadcast, which makes it harder for an Azerbaijani viewers to find their local content creators . Thanks !

  16. "Pieni viive" päälle/pois = Small latency. Meaning that it would add more latency

    Correct: "Alhainen viive" = Low latency. Meaning it will lower the latency

  18. I'm in Guatemala right now and when I try to view the Community Guidelines page, it puts it automatically in Spanish. I click Idiomas at the top and choose English, it loads the page, but then immediately switches back to the Spanish version! The only way I can read the English page is in an incognito window.
    I'm on Windows 10, Chrome.

  19. If you are subscribed and located in the "Abo verlängern"/"Continue Sub" section, it says "freizsuchalten!", but it should be "freizuschalten!" instead.

  20. When you scroll down to the friend list, it says who they are watching. However, in the Hungarian translation it says: "A következőt nézi:", and there is the name afterwards. This is too long for the name to be displayed, so where the name should there is just "...". It's impossible to see otherwise who they are watching, so I recommend it to change it to "Őt nézi:".
