I know what the meaning of "none" is in the following sentence but I can't understand the meaning of the whole sentence. Can one paraphrase the sentence for me?
He seems none the worse for the experience.
I still cannot understand the meaning of this sentece. Would you please paraphrase it for me in simple words?
5jj's link seems to put it in simple enough words.
none the worse (for something)
not damaged or hurt despite something. It was cold and windy during the parade but we were none the worse for the weather.
I think I have not been clear enough. That might be simple but not for me as a non-native speaker.
Would you please be kind enough to translate ( intralingual translation ) the meaning of the sentence which I posted a few minutes ago?

Which word or words in "not damaged or hurt despite something" do you not understand?
I need the intralingual translation of the sentence which I myself mentioned and not other sentences.
My example is this: He seems none the worse for the experience.
The dictionary example tells you we were not damaged or hurt by the weather.
See if you can apply that knowledge to your own sentence.
We shouldn't have to do everything for you.
