How to translate better

Hello! Im having a little difficulty translating sentences "correctly". I translate things very literal than reorder it after the literal translation to make more sense For example: Er liest nicht viele B├╝cher = He reads not a lot of books = He doesnt read many books.

I feel there is a better way of doing this. I dont how to describe the situation or feeling.

I can translate English to German better because its just simply following the syntax/rules.

I appreciate any help in advance!

Just keep practicing until your mind does the "switch" without you realizing, that's fluency.
