O nove praci?

I am wondering about this declination in Czech.

Google Translate says that 'I talk about new work' = Mluvim o nove praci.

But according to Wikipedia, this preposition takes the locative/6th case: https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/o#Czech

And according to MluvteCesky, locative neuter adjectives should take an -m: Mluvim o novem praci (https://mluvtecesky.net/en/grammar/chart_locative_sg)

Even if prace is a plural word, it should be 'Mluvim o novich pracich' or something like this.

Soo...what is the correct declination? Is this a different case than I think it is?

Thanks!

It should be o nové práci. Práce is feminine, not neuter so one should also use the adjective nový in the feminine form, that is nová. Its locative is nové.
