Here are my corrections/suggestions (in bold).

1 He has more money than you will ever have. He makes in one day what you make in a year. He makes more in one day than you [do] in one year.

2 He makes an annual turnover of about/around 150000 dollars, but this year's turnover isn't as high as last year's. (use possessive year's not years. Also, I would write $150,000.)

3 Here is the girl whom/who he thought was pretty. (He thought she was pretty)

4 That was the first and last time I was working here. I worked here once and never again. (Okay)

5 He lives on the snow so he is used to the cold. (Okay)

6 Everyone is nice except for/but him.

7 He forbids himself from playing more than hour./to play more than an hour.
(Forbid is incorrect. You forbid others, not yourself. "He does not allow himself to play for more than an hour.")

8 These shoes are open at/in the back.(Either, but I prefer at.)

9 Which key goes in what/which lock?
Thank you doctor D,

I'm translating a book from french to english which is why I've got sentences, I just translated these, I was wondering if you could take a look I think they are correct?
If you could take a quick look, it would help me a lot with my book.

Hello Doctor D,

I had one question:

Wouldn't it be

He lives IN the snow so he is used to the cold.

Thank you

I guess that depends on where he is actually living. Is he living in a house surrounded by snow? Then it is more accurate to say "in the snow." Is he living in the wilds, perhaps in a tent? Then it is more accurate to say "on the snow."

Maybe you should rephrase:

He lives in a snowy country, so he is used to the cold.
Thank you Doctor D,

I had one thing I wanted to ask you,

this thread is just so complicated for me, the sentences I have no clue whether they are correct or how to properly say them:

could you maybe take a look please?

Thank you Doctor D
It's kind of predicatble to see your posting sentences that you labeled "difficul questions". People took the time and gave you a lot of help but as far as I could see, you are not applying them. A lot of your question are in fact quite simple, if you took the time to learn and read real English instead of doing what you are doing. You said you are doing translation from French to English. Is that correct?
