"The old man says that he saw an alien on his field."

Translation:Den gamle mand siger at han så et rumvæsen på sin mark.

It should also be possible to use "hans" instead of "sin"


The use of 'sin', immediately following the reference to the alien, suggests that it is the alien's field


According to what I've learned so far, 'sin' always refers to the subject of the sentence (which is 'han' in this case), so it should unambiguously be the farmer's field
