Couldn't "fair" count as an acceptable translation of "jolie," in the sense that "fair" also means "pretty" in English? I understand 'jolie' is not a literal translation of 'fair' but if you were translating poetry and wanted to add some color to the translation, could you not also say "elle est jolie" translates to "she is fair"?

We are not translating poetry here :) , that's the problem.
