Cannot make pyg latin translator work after finishing all code


Hi, I've finished the code tutorial for the pyg latin translator. It is telling me it should work now, however when I run it, I get the word output that I enter, but it is still as I entered it. I followed the instructions and tried to find others with the same issue, but I just cannot work out why it isn't working. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Below is my code.

pyg = 'ay'

original = raw_input('Enter a word:')

if len(original) > 0 and original.isalpha():
    word = original.lower()
    first = word[0]
    new_word = word + first + pyg
    new_word = new_word[1:]
    print original
    print 'empty'


Try it by printing the new_word


Argh. That makes complete sense. And it solved it. Thank you very much :slight_smile:
