Check Yourself.... Some More Pyglatin Error


So I am currently stuck on this problem, but not for the conventional reasons (I think anyways).

As it currently stands this is my code for the problem set -

print 'Welcome to the Pig Latin Translator!'

raw_input("Enter a word: ")
original = raw_input()
if len(original) > 0 and original.isalpha():
    print original
    print "empty"

Now when I type in the code on one account, my PC (I have two, one for my PC and one for my laptop), I receive this error -

Welcome to the Pig Latin Translator!
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "python", line 3, in <module>
TypeError: 'str' object is not callable

However when I copy and paste the same code on my other account on my laptop it goes through and says I've done it correctly. I've checked formatting and seeing if I missed some small item but it looks as if I haven't, can anyone point my in the right direction or let me know what I'm doing wrong?

This is the link to the exact problem


Your code is correct. But why do you use two raw_input calls?

On the account where it does not work you should try to:

  1. copy your code;
  2. click reset code;
  3. click save & submit code;
  4. paste your code back into the editor;
  5. click save & submit code again.


Awesome thank you! It got to the point where I wasn't sure if I was missing something so I ended up adding that extra line accidentally. I'll make sure to test that now and see if it works!


Looks as if its not going through, I'll skip over that particular set!


Hm, that's truly strange. Sorry that I can not help. Codecademy glitch.
