  1. The current translation is intending bad in Swedish.

    “Om oss” (About) literally means “About us”. Much better to have a neutral term like “Info”, “Information” or “Om kanalen” (about the channel).

    Similarly “Planera” (Schedule) is the verb to schedule something or to plan. Whoever translated this had no context for where it would be used. It should be “Tablå” which is the term Swedish TV and radio uses when discussing their broad at times.

  2. So, the main Twitch design issue is that designers forgot about non-english speaking countries.
    Roobert font is awesome, but don't have cyrillic subset.
    So we have one font for russian menu items and another for Prime item.
    Check it with a russian langauge version of main page.

  3. Most likely the screamer will usually talk in one language. let's say there is both speech recognition translated to text of the native speakers language,. make that text readout selectable to be translated into other languages so that for and readers can read what the screamer is saying in comments in their own language.

    and reverse it too so that chatters could chat in their native language and appears in the streamer's native language text

    It doesn't have to be a very poetic translation just enough to get by. And foreign translations should have a flag by them so that…

  4. Most people speak two languages more or less fluently and like to watch streams in both these languages. But currently I don't think there's an option to sort by two languages. Either you don't sort and you see first your own language first (swedish for me) and then beneith there's all streams in all languages. I want to sort in Sweidsh + English

  7. The Albanian and Kosovo Twitch community would like their language to be easily accessible through the language tags as either "Albanian" or "Shqip", as it is way more user-friendly and allows for more discoverability. We're currently struggling to find new content creators, although there is a base of gamers and streamers in both Albania and Kosovo. Due to the lack of categorization, creators have a hard time getting exposure to our local audience and viewers can't identify these creators.

    Thank you.

  8. There is a pop-up when a viewer types a message in chat for the first time that the streamer is allowed to customize. I would like for Twitch to add messaging there automatically localized to the viewer's detected language that states any and all language restrictions the streamer may have.

  9. I'm trying to help others to improve their stream and I want to bring more Greenlandic people on the chat. I am a small content creator, so I want to bring more community and viewers to talk/chat with to my stream or on their stream.

  10. Greetings,

    I don't know if this is the right contact for this. But I wanted to suggest something that would be very beneficial for channels from different regions to grow.

    I have communicated this via twitch surveys before.

    My suggestion is:
    It would be very beneficial for channels to grow if the Twitch homepage displayed channels from the regions the users are from (e.g: if a user is from Saudi Arabia, the homepage will display Arabic channels ..etc)

    I have been streaming on twitch for 4 years now and have been a partner since 2015. However, I need to grow…

  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. Add Hebrew as a language option for channels, no one uses the "Other" option. That will help Hebrew speakers to stream more.

  13. 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…

  14. Dear Twitch Team,

    Please help to develop the Armenian gaming community, we have a lot of good players who want to stream in Armenian, to communicate and speak Armenian, but there is nowhere such a streaming platform where you can communicate in Armenian, if you could add Armenian to your wonderful platform, we would be very grateful

    Thanks
    Armenian Gamers

  15. The Swiss Twitch scene is getting bigger and bigger.

    However, since we do not speak/stream German but Swiss German,
    viewers have difficulties to find us on Twitch.

    Would there not be a possibility for Twitch to add the language 'Swiss-German'?

    That would help our community grow a lot and especially for the streamers, so they dont have to change their language.

  17. 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…
