    a few simple phrases

    здравствуйте !
    Hello, hello this is my first post

    I want to translate some simple phrases out of a conversation into russian. I tried to do it, but I dont know if it is good/correct...

    1.) You look like James Bond.
    2.) It looks like he has something on his mind.
    3.) Carl : "What are you doing ? " Larry :"Well, what does it look like ?"

    You see I try to understand how to translate "to look like"
    1.) ты похож на джэймза бонда. ?? ты выглядишь как джэймз бонд. ??
    2.) ??
    3.) карль : "Что ты делаешь ? " Лэрри : " Ну... " не могу перевести тот ответ...

    Thank you )

    1) Ты похож нааДжеймса Бонда
    2) Похоже, он что-то задумал.
    3)
    Карл: Что ты делаешь?
    Ларри: А на что это похоже?
    (По-твоему, что я делаю?)

    P.S. Welcome to the forum.

    Re: a few simple phrases

    1) Ты похож на Джеймса Бонда (more idiomatic). OR Ты выглядишь как Джеймс Бонд.
    2) Кажется, у него что-то на уме. OR Похоже, у него что-то на уме.
    3) Карл: "Что ты делаешь?" Ларри: "А ты не видишь?" OR "А как ты думаешь?"
    (Actually "what does it look like" is "на что это похоже", but the literal translation doesn't work here)
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.
