Sie kennt ihn erst seit vierzehn Tagen.

English Translation

She has known him only a fortnight.

Wie bitte?
Is it an idiom?

What is?

If you mean “vierzehn Tage”, yes it’s a pretty common thing to say instead of “zwei Wochen”, which would also work just fine, but I guess the translator looked for something that matches the “fortnight”.

Okay, sorry, I just didn’t know that fortnight means fourteen days.
I learn here English as well, and that’s good.
(I am Hungarian).
I need to be more careful now, what to report as mistranslation.
