Error in English: Should be "May is a longer month", not bigger

In Hindi it is bigger month" not a "longer month". It has been translated literally.

Yes of course I understand that it has been translated literally. :-) But no need for it!

Translating literally can make it more difficult. Because we don't internally think "How do I say May is a bigger month than June." Also then those unfortunates using the app lose a heart when they write an America English translation.

Is it not a fact that May is a longer month than June? Are we not supposed to use "hota" here?

Yeah I'm confused by this also

Why isn't it hota hai, as it's always the case that may is bigger.
