You cannot translate sentences because you did not add any language in your profile.
Because of the usage of お父さん, shouldn't the translation indicate that it most likely refers to someone else's father (noting that one usually calls his own father 父)?
Hmm, I think that you can use お父さん to refer to your own father.
Eijiro has many example sentences where it's the case :
Oh, of course you can use it :p I am still in the process of studying Japanese, so probably it would be best to ask a Japanese person, but when we first studied this in school I asked my teacher whether it is possible to use お父さん to show respect for your own father and she said it is possible, but most people would say 父. Still, I guess this is pretty much a question of education and upbringing, but let's see if a Japanese person could clarify the situation. But for now, I think it is good enough that people can see the comments and know that it is possible to refer to both your and someone else's father :)
