English to Chinese translations [Non-PRO]
English term or phrase:sister
Sister as in blood relative,
a female born by the same mother and father as you.
Explanation: in Chinese, the sister who is older than you in family is called '姐姐' and the sister who is younger than you is called '妹妹'。 if the sister doesn't refer to specific figure, generally we can construe 'sister' as ‘姐妹’, which is combination of 姐姐 and 妹妹。
