The name placement should work either way.

Too many mistakes with these translations, it's kinda ridiculous to be honest.

And annoying that 10 months later it hasn't been corrected.

Is it customary in Swahili to always put the name of the person being addressed before the command (i.e. not after)? Otherwise we shouldn't be marked wrong for putting it afterwards. But I can't tell if this is a real error or a software glitch.

It is marked as correct in other sentences to put the command before the name. That would be quite confusing, if there was a restriction in the word order.
