How can I translate the above sentence? I know prom means 'skolebal' but I am not sure what date stands for.

Lieber Paolo: "Die Mädchen genossen den Abschlussball mit ihren Partnern". Date = Amerikanisch für Ausgehpartner, Verabredungspartner, Rendevouz-Partner, Begleiter. Siehe Google-Uebersetzer = https://translate.google.ch oder https://www.dict.cc Question: What is your native language? LG: Elias

And sorry, my proposal in Norwegian Bokmål: „Jentene nøt skolens avslutningsball med sine partnere“.

"nøt" gives it a sexual connotation imo, I think this is better: "Jentene koste seg på ballet med partnerne sine."

I'm most proficient in English. Thank you for your attempt. What I am looking for is Norwegian.
