    How do you say it in Portuguese?

    Do questions like this sound natural? Can I say it in a more natural way?

    "Beachboy, how do you say 'window' in Portuguese?"

    That's the perfect way to ask how one says a word in a foreign language!

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I agree. This is the most natural and normal way to ask such a question.
