What is a windu? I'm not familiar with this term in English - is this a mistake in the translation meaning?

It's an Indonesian word, taken from Javanese which specify the duration of 8 years

I guess since there's no English word, they decided to use the Indonesian word unchanged

Maybe it should be 'a period of eight years'.

ok when google translate does not recognise windu perhaps this term should not be used..
