I'm wondering if my translation "Is swimming his hobby or isn't it?" should be accepted or not. Although it is a less literal translation it is more natural English...

I disagree. "...or not" is much more natural to my native speaker ear.

I agree with you, Ian. The other version doesn't flow as well.
