Translations of "Smoke"

Q: How do you say this in English (US)? 煙探知機(smoke detector)がなっていますがどうしたらいいですか
A: Thanks for the info!

If you know you caused the alarm to go off (by burning food, for instance), you can say:
"I've accidentally set off the smoke detector. How can I turn it off?"

If it's beeping and you don't know why, you can say:
"The smoke detector seems to be going off for no reason. How can I make it stop?" (or "What can I do?")

I know "going off" sounds like it is turned off but it actually means "ringing."

You could also use the word "beeping" but the front desk might think you're just talking about the beeping that happens when a smoke detector is running out of batteries. If you say "going off" it'll be more clear that it's actually ringing.

It still sounds a little unnatural, but it's better with these corrections. Good job! :)
Q: i have seen smoke does this sound natural?
A: I see smoke. (present)
I saw smoke. (past)

"I have seen smoke." is grammatically correct, but no one would ever say this unless they wanted the listener to know that they have seen "smoke" before at a given point, to convey that they're already familiar with the concept or visual appearance of smoke. It can be used as part of a statement, but it would require further embellishment, as it doesn't sound right on its own.
Q: Could you say ...

'The smoke floated steadily from the chimney ' ?

If not which verb should I use instead of 'floated'?
A: I think you could use floated. You could also use streamed (my preferred verb if you wish to use the adverb steadily), flowed, belched (implies more, dirtier, blacker smoke), gushed (faster flow than floated or streamed), wafted (gentle, like floated).
Q: I don't remember whether I got smoke. does this sound natural?
A: @anovee: if youre talking about cigarettes you could say "i dont remember if i got smokes"
Q: What does "smoke screen" in 563 mean?
A: A smoke screen is used to prevent the enemy from seeing your troops as you advance or retreat.

So in general I think it means some sort of a tactic to prevent others from seeing your true intentions.
