This is a homework. Please help me with it. I need to fix these sentences.

1. Some words the professor used in her lecture were impossible to translate them.

2. He is said to be very smart when he was young.


About #1
I think the word "them" is unnecessary.

About #2
I think the correct sentence is,
He is said to have been very smart when he was young.

Thank you.
