"Der Vater hat neun Töchter!"

Translation:The father has nine daughters!

In American English you would never say "The father has nine daughters" you would say "This father has nine daughters" (as I wrote and got wrong) or "That father has nine daughters". To better serve your users you should consider the options when you ask for German to be written in the English translation.


I'm not sure I agree. Example: He is her father. The father has nine daughters.

Another example: The family was made up of 12 children and their parents. Now the parents split. The mother has three sons, and the father has nine daughters.
