"å lete etter" means "to look after", am I right? It did not accept my answer He is looking after his backpack...

It's to "look for." He's searching for it, not making sure no one steals it.

Ok, I got that now. Takk skal du ha! :-)

Alright! So how would one say "to look after" in norwegian?

"å passe (på)"

Oh, so it's "Han passer på ryggsekken sin"? Tusen takk :)

Ja, det stemmer. Bare hyggelig! :)

Hvis man sa 'han leter etter ryggsekken HANS' betyr det at den tilhører en annen mann, riktig?
