    Default Problem with my code for a Leet Translator

    Hi everyone! I am currently working for my assignment in java and it is a Leet Translator. My problem is when i enter the word "enter" the output is "\+", it must be "3\+3r"... So what do you think is the problem with my code? Please help me!!!

    My code is :
    import javax.swing.*;
     
    public class Leet{
     
    		String [] english = {"A","a","b","B","c","C","E","f","F","G","g","H","i",
    				     "I","J","j","K","k","M","m","N","n","O","o","q","Q",
    				     "s","S","t","T","W","w","y","Y","Z","z"};
     
    		String [] leet = {"4","@","6","8","(","[","3","ph","Ph","9","9","#","1",
    				  "|","]","]","<","<","^^","^^","\\","\\","0","0","k","K",
    				  "5","$","+","7","VV","vv","j","J","2","2"};
     
    	public static void main(String [] args){
    		Leet leet = new Leet();
    	}
     
    	public Leet(){
    		String inputSentence = JOptionPane.showInputDialog("Enter phrase:");
    		String output = "";
     
    		output = translate(inputSentence);
     
    		JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null, output);
     
     
     
     
     
     
    	}
     
    	public String translate(String strTranslate){
    		String strTranslateCharacter = "", result = "";
    		for(int x = 0; x < strTranslate.length(); x++){
    			strTranslateCharacter = strTranslate.charAt(x)+"";
    			for(int y = 0; y < english.length; y++){
    				if(strTranslateCharacter.equals(english[y])){
    					result += leet[y];
    				}
    			}
    		}
     
    		return result;
    	}
    }

    Add some printlns or watch the variables in a debugger to see where things go unexpected

    According to the given input/output it seems the code is not correctly translating the letter 'e' or the letter 'r'
    Try to verify this assumption with other input that includes these letters, and try to determine why this may happen
    There may be other characters that do not translate as well
