    Bonsoir, j'aimerais traduire cette phrase : "Quelqu'un qui cherche à faire du bien autour de lui". Ceci répond à une question "What is a hero for you ?"
    J'ai essayé ceci : "Somebody who looking to do good around him" mais je ne suis pas sûr.

    Hello, I would like translate this sentence : "Quelqu'un qui cherche à faire du bien autour de lui". The context is the following : "What is a hero for you ?"
    I tried this : "Somebody who looking to do good around him" but I'm not sure. Could you help me ? Thanks a lot.

    Hi Embu :).

    SwissPete is correct. You could also say "somebody (or someone) who tries to do good to those around him".

    (You could also say "around him or her".)

    I agree with pyan, "tries" is a good replacement for "looking"
