Transcription exercises are really translation exercises in the French --> German course

In the last couple of weeks or so, the transcription exercises have become translation exercises. In other words, Duolingo asks you to write what you hear - but refuses a transcription.

I encountered - and reported - this first in some fairly late stages of the tree. Checking on earlier lessons, though, I discovered that the problem seems pervasive.

It does not affect the review lessons for each skill - only the lessons themselves.

J'ai également eu des soucis (un peu différents) avec ces exercices. Regarde si ma solution de contournement fonctionne :

Jusqu'à présent, le seul contournement que j'ai trouvé, c'est d'effacer l'historique du navigateur et de recharger la page.

J'ai ajouté ton problème à un rapport pour le personnel de duolingo que j'ai écrit sur le cas de Domleschg. Jusqu'à présent, il n'y a pas de réaction de leur part. Je suppose qu'ils sont tous occupés avec l'échange des sites

@Aileme, avez-vous déjà rencontré un tel bug : où la correction semble être dans la mauvaise langue ?
Pour ma part, je crois bien que c'est la première fois.

Pour nous aussi, c'est la première fois.

Probablement un tout nouveau bug indépendant des autres. :(


EDITION :
Autre cas (dans un autre cours), ici... :(

I fear it might take staff quite sometime to react, they seem to be busy with the roll-out of the new site. There is no reply to my message to them so far, but I have added eric.59's report to it.

Did you try the workaround that worked for my issue?

Not yet, but I'm away from home and not on my own computer. I'll try it when I get back. Thank you.

I have a Mac and it isn't listing the history the way it is in your screenshot. But I'm puzzled - why would erasing some of my browser history solve a problem with Duolingo's programming?

Probably no other reason that "it worked for others". ;)

After all the tries I did, I really don't find any logic behind this... but it works for me ;-) I suspect that the "forget about this site" command clears more than just history. Probably Javascript objects cached in memory?

Here are some intermediate screenshots that may help you, but not on Mac, sorry...

First step: Menu button, click on history, then "show all history":

History button

Show all history

...and here is the final step:

Full history

Hope it helps. But remember that my problem was not exactly the same as yours...

Thank you. I'll give it another try. What was the problem you were having that this solved?

Thank you all for the help. It looks like they've removed the transcription exercises for now, so apparently they're working on it. eric.59, I think you and I had the same problem, actually - it just took me a while to realize that when it rejected my transcription, it wanted the translation.

Sorry to take so long to respond. With the activity stream gone, I had trouble locating this conversation. Again, thanks for the help.
