I have now completed the duolingo tree with this sentence!!!

Wordbank suggested "gratitude", but I would have translated recognition? :-)

Both are possible meanings of the French sentence (and both are accordingly accepted).

"Recognition" NOT accepted April 4, 2019. Reporting.

"recognition" has been accepted throughout the entire lifetime of this sentence. It's possible there was another error in your sentence and the wrong word was underlined (the underlining is frequently imperfect).

"acknowledgement" was marked as an incorrect translation of "reconnaissance", but I think it's acceptable.

"She gains recognition from her colleagues" was marked wrong. Please explain
