Could this also translate as "She is American"?

Kind of. There is another way of saying that, but you could use this to mean that.

Ni allaf sillafu America ! (Why can't you guys spell it like we do in Welsh, which is how Americans spell it?) You can't change everything: we tried and failed before Gaidhlig became fashionable! Languages need to be flexible...

There are three different spellings for America - Aimearaga/Aimeireagaidh/Ameireaga

I have two dictionaries.

And Aimeireaga.

The spelling in Robertson & MacDonald's dictionary is Ameireaga.
