preview works but keeps saying its wrong

the challenge says I am using the wrong transform function in order to move the element up, I tried translatey(-100%) as well as translate(0, 100%). both showed it worked in the preview but they both keep saying that I am using the wrong function.

/* overlay and img transitions ---------- */

img  {
    transition: transform .6s ease-out;

/* overlay and img transforms ---------- */

.photo:hover .overlay {
transform: translate(0, -100%);
.photo:hover img {

While transform: translate(0, -100%); is a correct option, the challenge seems to be explicitly wanting you to use the translateY() function. And, even though transform: translatey(-100%) works in the preview, the test rule for the challenge seems to be case sensitive and wants the 'Y' to be capitalized, so use transform: translateY(-100%); and it should pass.
