"Her aunt is an interpreter."
Translation:Hennes moster är tolk.

I am a native Swede trying out the Swedish course on Duolingo simply because I have nothing better to do. I translated said sentence to "Hennes faster är tolk.", which was wrong, apparently. I believe this is quite a flaw, since "aunt" may be translated to either "moster" or "faster", depending on if said aunt is maternal or paternal. The sentence did not specify this, which does make it hard to know what word to use. Remember, in Swedish, we have two separate words. It's not as simple as in English. In short, I believe this question is flawed.
'sin' is used to refer to the subject of the sentence, i.e. "she held her pen" , not "it is her book".
