if we were discussing a superhero or a holy turtle, could the translation be "does he have many powers"?

That was my first interpretation as well. I believe it could be either.

Can kræfter translate to strength?

"Is he very strong?" should be correct too.

Same here. Unless I'm very very bad at Danish the word choices were completely wrong.

There's another word for strength as well: styrker, which is also used in militære styrker. Which would be power. But materiale styrke= strength. Elkraft= electric power. Han er meget stærk= strong.

I thought kræfter was strengths and that magter was powers. Maybe the two words are interchangeable? "Does he have many strengths" was rejected but I think this is the better translation. What is your take on this?

Why then does the program give the translation of "Is he strong?" Shouldn't it be as you have stated above?

If "kræfter" is the plural of "kraft", wouldn't "Does he have a lot of power?" be "Han har meget kraft?"
