Gen 46:15 refers to 33 sons and daughters beside Dinah through Leah, but the sons and grandsons listed in Gen 46:8-14 total to 33. Is the translation "sons and daughters" correct?

One possible example that comes to mind is where Naomi refers to Ruth
and Orpah, her daughters-in-law as 'my daughters'. Ruth 1:11-13
