Hi andrea, 

The sentences which spring to my mind would be -

Comment ça se dit en anglais ?

Comment on dit ça en anglais ?

which are impersonal 'tournures' but that is what you would say colloquially.

Hope this helps!

Options 2) and 3) are not correct. Here are two more ways to pose the question:

Est-ce que vous savez comment dire ça en englais?
Vous savez comment dire ça en englais?
