  1. Hello there,

    As streamer I made several times streams in Valencià, one of the languages from Spain. I would like to request a new feature letting us be allowed to use it as an official language in the platform.

    There are tons of people that use this language each day and it's the main language in most of the cities or towns from the Valencian Community.

    Please, consider this idea as this would be awesome to give us visibility and have a stronger market of the platform for Valencian people.

    Best regards,

  2. Hello,
    we are finishing our 6th season of our gaming talk show with over 200 oofficial streams and more than 2000 personal streams on the channel /ggtvmk

    It will be very motivational and would appreciate if you can add Macedonian language as Stream language option.

    There are couple more Macedonian streamers that help the growth of Twitch community here in Macedonia.

    Thanks for everything you do for the scene.

    Cheers,
    GGorast

  3. 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".

  5. The Czech Republic and Slovakia have more and more new creators, but not only the small ones but also the big ones who have thousands of people on their live broadcasts and would need faster support in their native language.

    Excuse me, but twitch support is often extremely slow and it is unacceptable for streamers of this size to wait for comments for a few days. Therefore, it would be good to introduce Support for CZ / SK as Poland has, for example, but with the difference that a live support chat could only be implemented for twitch partners.

  6. 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.…

  8. I've spoken to latvian streamers who have been told people struggle to find the channels that speak their language.

    This is an accessibility issue for those who have to spend the time scrolling through the 'other' languages in an attempt to watch streams in their languages.

    Simply adding more language categories would solve this issue. Twitch could ask their creators which languages they would like adding and I'm sure it would help many streamers and viewers alike.

  10. Please just add more language categories. It is not hard to type out a few more words to make a world of difference to Twitch users around the world.

    So many promising streamers are locked under "Language: Other", which doesn't let them get the recognition that they deserve and would receive in their own language community.

  11. I am so surprised with the discrimination against Tamil speaking people around the globe.
    Canada, Malaysia and Singapore has recognised Tamil as one of their country's official languages.
    however, its ridiculous to see 'Twitch' hasn't adopted/ignorant/discriminative towards one of the oldest languages in the world (older than Hindi, Urdu, Hebrew, German, French English, Anglo-Saxon etc)
    Pls update your settings for twitch streamer to allow adding the Tags : Tamil
    Thank you!

  12. new to twitch and its great so far! I just want to say that a little bit of twitch even 1 hour in a day is ok. With that out of the way.... to know my context, My demographics in short is am from Nairobi Kenya and my preference is single player games 80% of the time. And i want to request if you can put a swahili option just to target potential followers in our East african region . Swahili is the most common unifying language in Africa, and there is alot of discussion on making it an African…

  14. In very recent news, Twitch has not been complying with the overly strict requirements of censorship required by the site to run in Russia.

    Twitch has been fined now multiple times. Twitch within a month.
    It is easy for us all to see that you will not bend the knee and start censoring the streamers on your platform. However, it's also easy to see this situation won't end anytime soon.

    I think it's wrong to blanket ban Russian streamer and delete their content. Obviously. We have to preserve that history for once the war ends.

    However, the site being allowed…

  15. Have the possibility to choose between Portuguese or Portuguese-BR.
    They are similar languages, but have different expressions, different accents, and are written in a different way, just take a dictionary from both countries to see the difference.
    Youtube has the same problem, 95% of my friends don't see BR videos, If you want to have more fans you should make this separation.
    Best Regard

  16. "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.

  18. 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.

  19. Hello,
    I am an Italian user, who registered for the first time in Italy. However, I moved to the UK a few years ago and since then I changed every single setting in my Twitch profile (as well as my browser and every other application I use) to English as it has become my primary language.
    However, to this date I keep receiving emails from Twitch in Italian, and there are many pages (like the support one) which are still loaded in Italian despite any browser setting.

    How can I get rid of the Italian language on my account?

    Thanks,…

  20. add the language flemish. i'm tired of having to pick dutch and getting nothing else but channels from the netherlands presented. i'd like to see channels from my own country (Belgium). with this generalisation of dutch, that's as good as impossible. meaning your language recommendations are 99.99% useless.
