Got it wrong. I heard the numbers and translated them correctly, but entered them as numerals. What can I say? I am a statistician (retired).

If you're doing English to Gaelic, it won't accept numerals. Only Gaelic to English :)

Right, but this was Gaelic to English 8~)

Was it an audio exercise? If it was, it would have been asking for the Gaelic transcription.

As in the heading of this thread. No audio.

Then it should have been accepted.

I didn't realise it would take them in either language!

I had the same issue. It really should accept it. Putting in the numerals still shows the ability to translate.
