Streaming Language Swissgerman
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.
Some languages should have a special treatment. e.g. Spanish - There is European Spanish and Latin American Spanish. You should be able to search all variants or just one variant. Similarly German. There is Low German, Bavarian/Austrian German, Swiss German and some other variants. Another case is Balkan/Adria/South Slavic languages. They are basically the same and you should be able to search all of them at once.
Hope we can bump this one up - so it's getting done. I mean its nothing hard to implement.
And regarding the last comment here that we should not support dialects, I mean swiss-german is kind of a own language spoken by a whole country, is there more to say?
Swiss German not beeing selectable as a language brings to big issues:
1) It's really hard to find swiss streamers - cause a lot of the swiss people would like to watch other swiss peoples streams, but there is just no way to find them
2) German viewers joining a swiss german stream (since it's in the german category) is really a bad experience to the user (since they don't understand anything) and also kind of akward for the swiss german streamer
So please Twitch look into that and get it done.
If this is done we also need bavarian-german, palatinate-german, brandenburg-german and some more.
Speaking a dialect is not like speaking a different language.
strongly supported, german-german and swiss-german is like swedish and norwegian. greetings from a "german-german"

Yeah! Rock schwiz 🤘
we started with the Word #schweizerdeutsch in the title! So spread the words and get #schweizerdeutsch as new standard :)
Even thought I don't watch many streams, it would help the swiss streamer & esports scene a lot :D

Please add Swiss-German!! i would use that as well :)
make this happen please. Would make such a big impact in pushing swiss scene
Sorry, aber es nervt mich sehr, das alles nur in Englisch ist. Machen Sie sich mal Gedanken darüber, das es nicht nur englisch sprechende Menschen gibt.
oh ja so isch geil
I think all languages should be supported, you should go give the guy who asked to Add Slovenian language, some votes too

Great! I would use that
