If I hover over it, it says that it means "the". However, only "A" is accepted as a translation.

This is some kind of bug, we don't know why that hint appears. We're trying to get it fixed as soon as possible.

It means a if before the noun and the if it comes after. Ex: En man = A man, Mannen = The man. En sköldpadda = A turtle, sköldpaddan = The turtle.
