Question on seasons and adjectives
In the Repeat the Words section one of the phrases was:
Der heißere Sommer - The hotter summer
I understand the adjective heißer ending in e here as the article Der indicates the noun gender (M).
Out of curiosity I wanted to check my understanding of adjective endings when the article is indefinite. In this case I believe that the adjective has to carry the mark of the nouns gender so I expected:
A hotter summer -> Ein heißerer Sommer
But when I entered that phrase in both Google Translator and Microsoft Translator I got two different answers neither using heißerer
Microsoft: Einen heißeren Sommer
Google: Ein heißer Sommer
What is the correct translation?
