The phrase "a mountain chain" exists in English - it's in the Oxford Compact Dictionary

Same error here "Which mountain chain is this?" should be also correct?

This was also my first reaction - in this region we call it a mountain chain and I believe chain would be a translation of keten??

There is a difference between a mountain range and a mountain chain. However, such difference is not present in the Dutch language (as far as I am aware), so it is probably a missing translation. Did you also report it? :)

(I will add it, don't worry! :D )

I didn't report it - it seemed like splitting hairs.
