What is the capital of Tunisia?

Translation of “sounds good”

I’m an intermediate learner in French myself. I’m not sure about the direct translation of that expression; If focusing on getting the meaning across, I’d go with “ça marche” (that works) or “bonne idée” (good idea), or to get closer to the construction of that expression, “Ça me semble/paraît bien” (seems good to me).

What you asking for is essentially an informal synonym for d’accord. There are quite a lot of them, as you might imagine, but the most notable would be in my opinion

  • OK
  • Ça marche
  • Ça roule
  • Nickel

Or the more neutral

  • Ça me va
  • Bien
  • D’accord
  • Parfait

It depends how close you want to be to the nuance. If you just want to acknowledge, any of the possibilities mentioned so far is fine.

But if you really want to nail it down, “sounds good” means: “I believe it’s a good idea”, hence “I do not see any issue”.

The closest translation that comes to my mind is:

Ça me paraît bien.

or, as Google Translate correctly suggested:

Ça m’a l’air bien.


Ça peut aller.

No, it is not formal, because “ça” belongs more to spoken language. To be formal it would have to be:

Cela me paraît bien.

Cela m’a l’air bien.

So, Google Translate had it right.
