    Is ten/ta/to used as a straight definite article like in English?


    No, it is used to point to an object, to specify it. There are no articles in Czech.

      That's what I thought. Then why is "ta žena" translated "the woman" rather than "that woman"?


      that woman would be accepted trsnslations from Czech to English. It really depends on the context when you would use which.
