In French (not my native language), I would transcribe it like this:

Ze couique braoune fazeur djompse auveur ze lézi chèpeurde dogue, ouaïlste iting lemeune tchoclite ouise stônze. E yong lédi ise sing-ing ine ze tcheurtch naou, stane-ding nir e lardge ouine-dau, olzau chi quène-t bi bozeurde tou rieulaïse ite.

Very interesting so far!

With Slovene spelling:
rielajz it.

Are you sure it should be 'it'?
How would you differentiate between the English "it" and "eat"?

In Catalan:

De cuic braun fàder jamps óuvar de léizi jépart dok, uailst ítinc lemon xòcleit uiz estouns. A iaunc leidi is singin in de xarx nau, estandinc níer a larx uindou, aldou xi quen bi bòderd tu rialais it.

English [θ] sound doesn't exist in Catalan, so I've used the Spanish sound [θ] (used in "Z") which all Catalans can do it. Also, keep in mind that "E" can be both [e], [ɛ] and [ə], and "O" can be both [o], [ɔ] and [ u] depending if it's stressed or not in the word. The schwa [ə] can be both written with "A" or "E", at least in my regional dialect.

Unfortunately, Catalan only allows one single stress mark per word, so a few words from the transliteration won't be 100% correct though.

This is how I'd do Finnish:

Ta kviik praun faatö tsamps oova ta leisi sepööt taak, vailst iiting leeman tsookalit vis stouns. A jang leidi is
singing in ta tsööts nau, standing niiö a laats viintou, aaltsou sii kant pii pootöd tyy riilais it.

Native speakers can offer a better shot. :P

I'll do another version then.

Tö kvik praun fatör tsamps ouvör tö leisi shepööd dok, wailst iiting lemön tsoklit wit stouns. Ä jang leidi is
singing in tö tsööts nau, ständing niör Ä laats windou, oolthou shii känt bii bathöört tu riölais it.

Now it's difficult to say how much of this reflects my own pronounciation. The two "w"s aren't the same as
Finnish "v" and we do have this phoneme in Finnish as an allophone to "v", even though we don't use it in writing.
That's why I chose it. I used ö instead of a in many places, because that's closest to how I hear them. Dog--
>taak and over-->oova lemon-->leeman seem imposible to me. Others are more a matter of taste.

My husband wanted to join in, so here's our (his) version.
Tö kvik braun faatö tsamps ouvö tö leisi shepööd dog, wailst iiting lemön tsoklit wit stöuns. Ö jang leidi is
singing in tö tsööts nau, ständing niö ö laats windou, ooltou shii kaant bii batöört tu riölais it.

Not much difference. We mostly discussed about t/th for the alveolar fricatives and how to write the first vowel
of bothered (long or short). The schwaa was a problem too, since we don't have it in Finnish.

I like the Finnish versions above. I can see some sounds are VERY difficult to say. Therefore, I feel better about my Icelandic version. Account for the fact that Ð never appears at the beginning of a sentence. There's no way of saying "z" (although that letter used to be used in some consonant clusters) so I'll make it "s". "Sh" also isn't a sound as such but it does often sound like this before some consonants, as in "físk". I'll make do with "síep" for "shep". "W" is also not known but "ui" with the appropriate previous letter might work, and "v" where it doesn't. "Ch" is a REALLY hard one to work out. If a native speaker or more advanced pronouncer of Icelandic can do a better version, please do! I've no idea what accent this is supposed to be either.

So, Icelandic:

Ðe kuik brán farðer djúmps ófer ðe leisí síepudd dogg, vælst ýtin(g) lemmon djokolatt við stóns. Ei jun(g) leidí is singin(g) in ðe kers (...yeah) ná, standin(g) níur ei lardjúindó, olðóshí (seperate the sh) carnt bí boðerd tú rialæss it.

In German:
