no adjective

Hi - Could someone explain to me why the line "he told me that he needed a new raincoat" is translated into French without the adjective "new"?  (..il m'a dit qu'il avait besoin d'un imperméable).  Thanks.

Bonjour à tous !

This was indeed a typo on our end. Thanks to your feedback, it's now been fixed :) 

Merci beaucoup et bonne journée !

I have the same question.

I reckon it’s just an oversight. It happens. You would probably say « un nouvel imperméable » for an exact translation.
