Let's not forget that even in English the word "man" can mean many different things depending on context. The opposite of "woman", i.e. an adult male. It can also mean humanity or people in general ("mankind" or "man's best friend", for example); plus, husband and even significant other/boyfriend. Granted, the husband/boyfriend usage may be more informal in English than it seems to be in many other languages. And the "humankind"-type meanings seem to be falling out of use because they are now perceived to be "sexist" by some. Nevertheless, none of these forms of the word sound at all unusual in our day-to-day speech either.
