Can someone translate: "He doesn't feel guilty" and then "He can't feel guilt"

As in, one is for a single occurrence, the other is that he doesn't have this emotion in him...he can't feel it.

Thank you in advance

Well, until a native speaker comes along and corrects them:

  • "He doesn't feel guilty" = "Ele não se sente culpado"
  • "He can't feel guilt" = "Ele não consegue sentir culpa"

For "He can't feel guilt"
I think a good translation is:
Ele não é capaz de sentir culpa.

why could this not be translated as "he is not sorry"?

' He is not feeling sorry' seems a good translation to me.
