accent

From today's writing challenge. How come "They are colored" translate as "Ils sont colorés" but "They are multicolored" becomes "Ils sont multicolores" (without accent) ?

Bonjour Joakim !

Unfortunately here, I have no other explanation but "that's the way the word is" :)
To say "multicoloured", the French adjective is indeed "multicolore" without an accent, and it's pronounced [multicolor].

À bientôt !
