Both "Her wife is a scientist" and "Her wife is one scientist" are possible translations of that sentence.
There's a subtle difference from Ihre Frau ist Wissenschaftlerin that I'm not sure I can explain adequately.
Without the article, you're talking about her role or profession. With the article, it's more like describing her or saying that she's one of those who are scientists.
