Perdre - 2nd person present

Could not the translation for "You lose" be "Vous perde" as well as "Vous perdez"?

No. < Vous perdez > is the only correct conjugation for vous with perdre in the present tense of the indicative mood. 

You may be confusing the situation of < vous > being used in the singular polite form in compound tenses, in which case past participle agreement of number and gender can occur in specific situations.

Could not the translation for "You lose" be "Vous perde" as well as "Vous perdez"?
