The translation of the sentence "Björnen dricker vatten" as "The bear drinks the water" is wrong! Why?

That would be Björnen dricker vattnet.

Vatten is neuter, so it takes ett.

If you're translating from swedish to english, it should be "The bear drinks water".

Vatten = water
Vattnet = the water

Björnen dricker vatten = The bear drinks water
Björnen dricker vattnet = The bear drinks the water

Correct, of course. Just a hint: if you add two spaces after a line, it'll put a line break for you. Otherwise it'll just continue on the previous line, as you noticed. :)
