While there are no hits on "twins", booksearch does find 3 uses of
"twin"; once as a synonym for "two",  once as being short for "two
identical", and once as being short for "identical copy".

Perhaps a liberty taken by the translator, but also perhaps signifying
that the *concept* of twins does exist.

Thinking about it a bit, even if Dragaerans themselves never give
birth to twins, they may be familiar with other species (including
Easterners) that do sometimes give birth to twins.
