Does not accept correct answer (party --> Feier)

I was recently doing the questions for English from German. I was on the level about dates and times, section 7 when this question came up. The question was "'Party' übersetzen", with three pictures that all show a party situation. I answered "Feier" which was not accepted as correct. I admit, "Feier" is not as popular as "party" amoung young people, but it is the correct translation.

edit: A later question accepted "Ich mag Feiern" as a translation for "I like parties"

maybe it wanted you to translate from German to English (Party = party)? Capital P in the beginning may be a hint for a German word

You are correct.

It is written with a capital "P". The Programm is also consistent with this throughout the lesson (German with "P", english with "p"). So it is technically all my fault.

I still think the question is a bit tricky though. It should be clarified in which language to translate, e.g. "Party" ins Englische übersetzen

Don't feel too bad about it. You are neither the first nor the last one to stumble into this trap. Where do you think I got my knowledge from ? ;-)
