  1. 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?

  2. Hi. I found some mismatches in translation. Settings -> Advanced -> Video stats: Value translated as "Ценность" but the right word is "Значение"

  3. 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.'

  4. "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.

  5. Like Steam offers, there should be localized posters. Chinese posters, for example, will often have a completely different name and/or different brand logo.

  6. Hello,
    if someone subscribes x months in a row (as an example, I will use 5 months), it says in Polish " Użytkownik zasubskrybował na 5 miesięcy!" which sounds like "A user has subscribed for 5 months ahead!".

    I would suggest changing "Użytknownik zasubskrybował już [X]. miesiąc z rzędu!" where [X] is a number of months and do not forget the period sign after the number.

  8. The Norwegian translation for Disabled is incorrect. According to my Mod, the correct term is: Nedsatt funksjonsevne

  9. 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:".

  11. When adding a new app at https://dev.twitch.tv/console/apps/create, the first field in Russian reads "Владелец", which translates to "Owner". In reality, this field is intended for the application name, and it reads just "Name" in English.

    The correct translation would be "Название" ("Name"), or "Название приложения" ("Application name").

    P.S. It's also impossible to change your language while on the dev.twitch.tv subdomain, and you have to navigate to the main site in order to change language.

  13. • 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.)

  14. 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"

  15. The common tag 'no backseating' is translated as 'mondje dicht', which means little mouth closed, I have absolutely no clue what the person who made this translation was thinking, probably creative use of Google Translate. There is no Dutch equivalent for 'backseating' so it is used together with the Dutch word for no, which is 'geen': geen backseaten.

    The other one is that the category 'just chatting' is translated as 'gewoon chatten', even though Dutch people like me use 'chatten' to only mean typing in a chat. The word for chatting as in talking out loud in Dutch is praten.…

  16. Regarding Danish: On the expired subscriptions page, where it says "Genoptag dit abonnement... - ...næste abonnentbadge i (x) måneder" It should be "... om (x) måneder", as you have correctly put it in the message, where it is days instead of months.

  17. In the dialog that appears when changing password, the button Save, is translated as "Ahorrar" that means save money, the appropriate translation would be "Guardar"

  18. When someone shares their subscription in chat, this is the message in Swedish:

    "(username) prenumenerade av Nivå 1De har prenumenerat i 20 månader, just nu har de 17 i rad!"

    Firstly, it should be "prenumererade" and "prenumererat" ("r" instead of "n").

    Secondly, "på Nivå 1" instead of "av" and there should be a full stop and space after.

    Fixed: "(username) prenumererade på Nivå 1. De har prenumererat i 20 månader, just nu har de 17 i rad!"

    This is just some examples, there are some more errors when gifting subscriptions.

  19. When opening the subscription window on Twitch, the text will state "SPEICHERN - Länger abbonieren, mehr sparen!" (The more you support, the more you save).

    "Speichern" is a (contextual) incorrect translation for "saving (money)". "speichern" is rather used in a context that means "to record". "Sparen" would be a more suitable translation in this situation, which has also been correctly used in the sentence afterwards.
