The English sentence should read, Tini returns home from the bank. Without that context an ambiguous sentence has been given a specific situation translation.


Yes, that's true.
There is not enough context.

"Tini returns (to where?) from the bank".

If Tini returns to her house, then "pulang" would be a better translation.
If Tini returns to her office, then "kembali" would be better.
