Except, the use Sonnabend is not a dialect. It's a variant more prevalent in Northern Germany, true, but it is High Standard German (unlike Sünnobend, Saterdag, Sünnavend).
"Sonnabend ist der zweite hochsprachliche Begriff für den Samstag, er steht im Nordosten..."

From Hanover, the epitome of Standard High German.
I don't see that choice in the internal Translation Guidelines, and when I had a look at that unit, all the other (older) example sentences for Samstag all accepted Sonnabend in the reverse translation.
As far as I can tell, this was simply an oversight -- this sentence is newer and the contributor who added it didn't think to add the alternative Sonnabend in the reverse translations.
