I constructed the sentence ... 'Ma belle-fille est la fille de mon mari' which was accepted ... however I believe that 'belle-fille' is the translation for 'daughter in law' ... and 'Demi-fille' (the correct translation for stepdaughter) is not available for selection into the sentence

"Demi-fille" is not a French word. This is why it was not available for selection.

Please use a dictionary if you are not sure about a word.

"Ma belle-fille" is the same for "my daugher-in-law" or "my stepdaughter".

"Demi-" is used only as "demi-frère" (half-brother) and "demi-soeur" (half-sister).

You can still add info or use "la femme de mon fils" or "la fille de ma femme".

As in the example. Context always helps.
