Why is "belle-soeur" sister in law? It seems more like "beautiful sister". I'm confused

How do you say."my sister-in-law is my husband's sister?" I just cannot get these right.

You would say it as it is written at the top of this page. That's the best translation I see above.

Could belle-soeur also mean "step-sister"? I was wondering this since "belle-mère" and "belle-père" both translate to "step-mother" and "step-father."

No. A stepsister is "une demi-sœur".

Also could be her brother's wife
