he seems ready, he seems to be ready, he looks ready--all more or less the same and correct in English

I'm quite sure готов can be used as "drunk" . Is that correct?

Yes, sure. And even dead. For example, if someone is hunting a bear and well... they doubt if it is already dead, one hunter might say this phrase to his fellows.

Well, it all depends from what do you mean when you say "I'm ready" ;-)

"It looks, he is ready" why not? Otherwise, it translated as: "это выглядит, как буд-то он готов"

"It looks, he is ready" is not a valid English sentence. You need something to connect the parts of the sentence: "It looks as though he is ready", or "It looks like he is ready".

Could this be taken as "Similarly, he is ready"

Shouldn't be "it looks like he has finished" also accepted? As in "he worked on it for days; it looks like he has finished". Or am I falling victim to "false neighbours" with Czech again?

Should "Apparently he is ready" also be accepted?

"It looks as though he is ready" seems at least as good, if not better, than "It looks as if he is ready." Perhaps I am missing something?

"He appears to be ready" was rejected. I complained.
