https://www.duolingo.com/profile/kaicrawford

Translate by hovering over the words is not working?

Whenever the words are underlined with dots it means if you hover over it you will get the translation. I only do this when the words are orange (meaning new word) so that I can find out what it is.

This isn't working anymore, whenever I hover over it it shows the same word (still in Spanish) and what gender the word is.

Please help, is there a fix to this? Have I enabled some sort of a feature by accident?

Thank you :)))

I'm having the same issue right now for French, no idea why

I think we're all experiencing this for some reason today. I just look on the internet to translate each word.

    It's SUPER annoying. (I hardly need it either, but I'm working on a new skill!)

      Started having this problem too after the recent app update, then came to the website and it's doing the same thing. Noticed it in French, German, and Swedish.

        I just updated the app too! It doesn't have this problem in Irish though...

        I am having the same issue in Spanish, English, Portuguese, French, Deutsch, and Svenska... It is in all languages... It is imposible to continue if we can not see the new words in the new units...

        Having the same issue in Spanish, but it works fine in Danish. Doesn't work on the mobile app, either.

        Seems to be working now, thank you.

        Keep sending bug reports with the "support" tab on the left. The more they get, the more likely they will fix it.

        I experienced the same problem as well in French, Spanish, and Italian
