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!

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

Only in my own language. And on the smartphone. I'm using the PC now. I type too quickly. I've got to pay more attention, and check before posting...
