  1. Every single time when I'm on a new pc and I want to log into Twitch I need to receive a verification code to be able to log in. I'm from Belgium and I live in the Flemish-speaking (Dutch) part. This SMS however is always in French. The majority of the people speak Dutch in Belgium and everything else on Twitch is in either Dutch or English.

  2. The Malaysian "Malay" language is very much different to Bahasa Indonesia, even though it has its similarities, are very much culturally and phonetically different that it could cause confusion if I were to label my streams as Bahasa Indonesia. Furthermore, Singaporean Malay also refer to their native language as "Malay", so I dont see why not adding the Malay language in the stream info setting.

    Otherwise you could instead rename the "Bahasa Indonesia" tag as "Bahasa" instead of "Bahasa Indonesia" and basically combine them since the Malay language is also called "Bahasa Melayu" in its native language, but this is…

  3. When publishing a vod by hand in the stream manager tab a popup says "Dadurch wird es für die Öffentlichkeit unzugänglich", which means the exakt opposite of publishing something. If something is "unzugänglich" noone has access to it.

    Seems to be a translation error.

  4. 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.

  6. What's wrong:
    Norwegian translation,
    when you hover over a user that has been subbed for nine months it says "9-årsabonnent", which means 9 years subscriber.

    år = year

    Solution:
    Correct translation should be "9-måneders abonnent"

  7. I'm in Guatemala right now and when I try to view the Community Guidelines page, it puts it automatically in Spanish. I click Idiomas at the top and choose English, it loads the page, but then immediately switches back to the Spanish version! The only way I can read the English page is in an incognito window.
    I'm on Windows 10, Chrome.

  9. 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.

    Ana responded

    Hey there,

    Sorry it's taken so long to get a response to this feedback. I appreciate you reporting this translation error in such detail. I have reported it to our localization team for review. Thank you!

  10. He notado que en la descripcion del video donde pone la fecha del stream guardado, cuando es de hace dos dias pone: "antier". Entiendo que en mexico y algunas zonas esto significa"anteayer o antes de ayer. Mi sugerencia es que sea cambiado ya que en la mayoria de latinoamerica no decimos esa palabra que es de una zona especifica. y que sea Anteayer o antes de ayer.

  11. 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.

  12. In the cancellation emails "Ihr Abonnement wurde storniert", there is a space missing after the date.

    Current Translation:
    "Ab dem in dieser Mail angegebenen Datum wurde dein Abo gekündigt und wird sich nicht verlängern. Bis zum 1. Jul 2024genießt du weiterhin deine Abonnementvorteile."

    Expected Translation:
    "Ab dem in dieser Mail angegebenen Datum wurde dein Abo gekündigt und wird sich nicht verlängern. Bis zum 1. Jul 2024 genießt du weiterhin deine Abonnementvorteile."

  13. In Norwegian, when you click on "Bla gjennom" - > "Kategorier" -> "{game}" (Browse -> Category -> {game} in English) there is a highlighted stream running at the top. The button of which to watch the stream says "Følg strømmen" which translates to "Follow the stream". The word "Følg" is also used by Twitch to actually follow the stream, so it is very confusing. In English Twitch the "Følg strømmen" is "Join Stream", which makes alot more sense. You should find a better translation in Norwegian, like "Se på" (Watch), "Se på strømmen" (Watch the stream) or "Bli med" (Join).

  15. The currently "experimental" reactions feature ( https://help.twitch.tv/s/article/reactions?language=en_US ) translates the "Love" reaction as "Romántica" (Romance) in Castilian Spanish. This has really bad implications towards the streamer-viewer relationship. It should be translated as "Me encanta", meaning you are enjoying the stream a lot.

  16. First of all, I’d like to remove the eye symbol emote, as you know, some people on twitch are Muslims, and in Islam, eye symbol is haram (not allowed in Islam basically) so I’d like you to remove it immediately, second of all, lower down the ads, people are getting like 5-10 ads these days, yeah it helps out the streamer but still

  17. The Spanish translation for "While X is offline", at the main page, says "Mientras X está desconectado". This last word is masculine, making the phrase inaccurate for non-masculine streamers.
    I think, in order to be more inclusive, the correct phrase should be something like "Mientras X no tiene conexión" or "Mientras X no está en directo", avoiding words that depend on the streamer's gender identity.
    I didn't see this kind of mistake anywhere else, but I think this should be revised in general.

  18. The Romanian translation for the most used word on this website is very odd and difficult to understand: "Redare in flux". You could keep it as "stream" or "live" or use something like "transmisiune".

  19. English: "# Channel Points awarded to # viewer(s)"
    Korean: "시청자 #명님에게 보생으로 # 채널 포인트를 드렸습니다"

    There is a translation error in Korean at the streamer's dashboard > Predictions.
    It hasn't been fixed since long time ago.

    "보생" must be fixed to "보상" as "awarded"`s translation.
    And "~님" is also awkward for Korean.

    I suggest "시청자 #명에게 보상으로 # 채널 포인트를 드렸습니다"

  20. "Unmodded" tag is translated as "Χωρίς εποπτεία", as you can see here https://www.twitch.tv/directory/all/tags/532af76e-eabd-451e-9709-cd1cc7653edb which means "without moderator/supervision" in the Greek language.

    However, on this page, https://www.twitch.tv/directory/all/tags is described as "For streams that feature gameplay from an unmodified version of a game".

    My suggestion is to change it from "Χωρίς εποπτεία" to "Χωρίς τροποποιήσεις", which means "without modifications".
