 TM additional fee- no translation in TEAS Plus

I just received an office action for a trademark that I filed a few months ago via TEAS-Plus.
In the action, the Examiner is requiring a translation of a word which he believes has meaning in another language. After doing a search of the TM database I found several issued trademarks with the same word. Of these, about half of the issued marks had the translation and the other half did not. Additionally, the Examiner also issued a Fee-Discrepancy notice requiring an additional $50 fee for failing to include the translation (which I don't think is needed) in the original filing.

I have filed several trademarks and have seen Translation requirements before, but never an additional fee requirement such as this before. I am wondering if anyone else has seen or received a similar requirement. Of course, any pointers or advise for overcoming this would also be greatly appreciated.

Thank you all in advance for your comments.
