OK, I wrote "the book", which was wrong. How can we tell the difference between "a book" and "the book"?

You can't without context. That is a valid translation. You should report it if you haven't already.

I think, as long as the item is not 'possessive' or 'referred to' (the book) , it's a good rule of thumb to let it remain 'generic' (a book)
