French "unique" Duolingo translates as "priceless"; also the pronunciation of "forte" seems simply wrong.

It can mean priceless, but only when applied to a person, e.g. "He's priceless!" amusing, ridiculous. "Il est unique, ce mec-là!" (slang).

yeah, but still... it's far from standard use.

You are correct by the way that "forte" is mispronounced. The "e" should be silent. (Note that in "fort", the "t" is silent as well.)
