to EVOKE – przywoływać (to bring to mind, to make you think of)
an EASTER EGG HUNT – szukanie jaj wielkanocnych (an Easter tradition where children look for sweets hidden in a garden/park)

NOT TO BE MISTAKEN FOR – nie mylić z (it is not the same as)
a TREAT – nagroda, smakołyk (a prize)
a PIECE OF SOFTWARE –aplikacja/ oprogramowanie (an app or a computer program)
a DEVELOPER – twórca (the author)
