    Hello

    Quick and stupid question: how do you translate "aux échecs" in those two examples:

    "fou", means "bishop" (aux échecs = at chess??) but literally it also means "madman".

    "la dame" est la traduction de "the queen" non seulement dans les jeux de cartes mais aussi aux échecs.
    "la dame" is the translation for "the queen" not only in cards but at chess too".

    Thanks for any comment :)
