Why is it not acceptable to translate La influencia as simply "Influence" in the same way as La unidad can be simply "Unity"??

nobody says "the influence" if you're talking about the illness.

'Influencia' is not the illness either, but 'influence', like the power you have over something or someone. The illness is 'influenza' ;]
