"Dov'" is translating to "Dov'", i am confused.

Is short for Dove which means "Where"

Dov' is the contracted form of Dove. It appears they haven't programmed the hints to reflect this.

As far as I remember "dove" is only contracted to dov' in front of "è"

dov´è is not same of dove è?

Due to the repeated vowels, Dove è is contracted to Dov'è
