  1. 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…

    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.

  2. 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".

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Pls add Serbian or Balkanian language to stream language, cause every country from former Yugoslavia / Balkan basically talks the same language and have good understandings of it. And there is a lot of streamers / gamers from these countries that would use this tag when streaming. Those countries are Slovenia, Croatia, Bosna and Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia. Or maybe the best would be to add those languages one by one.

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. 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…

  13. 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!

  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. I would like to see Twitch add tags for more sign languages. Despite what a lot of people believe. ASL (American Sign Language) is not a universal language for Deaf people.

    There is BSL (British Sign Language), NZSL (New Zealand Sign Language) and many, many more!

    It can be extremely isolating for those that can only communicate via sign language. And with a place like Twitch constantly bringing people together, just think of the spaces that will become available to Deaf people if these tags are made available to them and how much visibility they will receive as a result.

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

  17. 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?

  18. I think many people is interested in watching streamers from their own country if possible, but if you try to search streamers sorting by country...well bad luck, that option doesn´t exist.
    The best part of this idea, is that it doesn´t require a lot of work, because i 100% think Twitch already has data of streamers by country, so it is an inexpensive and easy idea to implement.

  19. 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

  20. 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.
