    According to google translate:

    "Well I lost my queen and I'm paralyzed, I do not know what to do. We will revenge in some time!"

    Good I lost my queen and I am completely paralyzed there, I do not know what to do. One will do the revenge in some times!

    Neither of those translators produced perfect idiomatic English, but they both managed to get the message across.

    I am half french and this is my take on it...

    OK, I lost my queen and I am completely paralysed there, I don't know what to do. We'll have a re-match soon!

    (even though the direct translation of revanche is revenge, and Bon is good - you wouldnt really say that in English) (translation can be a nightmare)

    He said you are a pig and he is going to visit your home
    and kill you for defeating him. Then he will exact revenge
    on every member of your family with various weapons he
    will bring with him. Then he will burn your home and toast
    marshmallows in the flames while he throws chess pieces
    on to the fire.

    If I were you I'd change my name and move and go into
    witness protection.

    that's just the literal translation and loses the nuanced tones. much too tame that. really, to give it a fair translation, don't hold back.
