Translation:This university was founded in the year eighteen thirty nine.
exactly, or "in eighteen thirty nine"; you need a definite article with the word "year", but not without it
And the wordbank should really have the “one thousand eighty” version. It took me so long to make sure the wordbank didn't have the words I needed, make sure I did indeed read the sentence correctly, before finally deciding to just type it in myself.
"Established" should be accepted as synonym for "founded". Wouldn't "higher education" be a translation of "perguruan tinggi"? The word "year" is I think redundant in the English translatiion.
