Thanks for telling me, Mark,

I actually had seen the 'forewarned - four-warned' difference but wrongly thought it could be done seriously in a translation as a creative act. A creative writer or translator can take liberties to make a point clear but exactly which liberties can be takes and which cannot that is in fact beyond my abilities as you have seen.
