Hi everyoneSmile, I was looking for the HP books in French and came across this site (HarryPotterWiki) which many of you may know of; It had the titles of each of the 7 books in Hindi and of 5 of them in Marathi. No other Indian language translation was available. I just thought of posting it here since I found some of them funny.LOL I guess that's probably because I'm so used to the name in English that it's just bizzare while seeing it in another language that I know of. Embarrassed


Harry Potter and The Philosopher's Stone:

Hindi: Hairi Potar aur Paras Patthar

Marathi: Harry Potter Aani Tatvachintakacha Pashan


Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets:

Hindi: Hairi Potar aur Rahasyamayi Tahakh.ana

Marathi: Harry Potter Aani Rahasyamay Talaghar


Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban:

Hindi: Hairi Potar aur Azkaban ka Qaidi

Marathi: Harry Potter Aani Azkabanacha Kaidi


Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire:

Hindi: Hairi Potar aur Aag ka Pyala : (Harry Potter and the Chalice of Fire)

Marathi: Harry Potter Aani Agnichashak


Harry Potter and The Order of the Pheonix:

Hindi: Hairi Potar aur Mayapanchi ka Samuha: (Harry Potter and the Order of the Illusion Bird)

Marathi: Harry Potter Aani Phinix Sena


Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince:

Hindi: Hairi Potar aur Haf-Blud Prins


Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows:

Hindi: Hairi Potar aur Maut ke Tohfe

Okay this one is a good translation. Clap

Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets:

Hindi: Hairi Potar aur Rahasyamayi Tahakh.ana

This one sounds like a CID episode title! LOL

Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban:

Hindi: Hairi Potar aur Azkaban ka Qaidi

Azkaban ka Qaidi...perfect Hindi movie title. LOL

Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire:

Hindi: Hairi Potar aur Aag ka Pyala : (Harry Potter and the Chalice of Fire)

Aag ka Pyala...ROFL This sounds like the person is ready to drink the fire. ROFL 

Harry Potter and The Order of the Pheonix:

Hindi: Hairi Potar aur Mayapanchi ka Samuha: (Harry Potter and the Order of the Illusion Bird)

I'm sorry this is just too much. ROFL 

Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince:

Hindi: Hairi Potar aur Haf-Blud Prins

Isn't this the same as English? In Hindi it should be Hairi Potar aur Aadha-Khoon Rajkumar. ROFL 

Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows:

Hindi: Hairi Potar aur Maut ke Tohfe

Maut ke Tohfe...that's Death Present. ROFL

Yeah yeah (Kani - May I call you that?)...I doTongue...I remember discussing with my friends too LOL. Prisoner of Azkaban was telecast on Pogo in Hindi and the next day in school, all we could do was crack up laughing while saying Tumpishaach and Mugloo and Khoji and what not!!!!ROFLROFLROFL

But you know to an extent I would say the movies are a tad bit better as far as dubbing goes. The book in Hindi however, has some translated phrases which make no sense whatsoeverSilly. I just found a site stating this:

Pg. 113 (UK edition): Ron had a piece of steak-and-kidney pie halfway to his mouth, but he'd forgotten all about it.

Pg. 142 (Hindi translation): Ron ke haat mein steak-aur-kidney bhari kachauri ka tukda tha, jise voh muh ki taraf aadhi doori tak toh le gaya tha, parantu voh uske barey mein bhool chuka tha!!!

LOLLOLLOL

That said, this one takes the cake:

Pg. 194 (UK edition): So I told him, Fluffy's a piece o' cake if yeh know how to calm him down

Pg. 244 (Hindi Translation): Isliye, humne usse bataya, Fluffy cake ka tukda hai, basharte aap usse shaant karne ka tareeka jaante ho!!! 
ROFL ROFL ROFL

Totally Agree!!! Approve

Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets:

Hindi: Hairi Potar aur Rahasyamayi Tahakhana

Haha...couldn't put it any better LOLLOLLOL

Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban:

Azkaban ka Qaidi...perfect Hindi movie title. LOL

Totally Smile

Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire:

Hindi: Hairi Potar aur Aag ka Pyala : (Harry Potter and the Chalice of Fire)

Aag ka Pyala...ROFL This sounds like the person is ready to drink the fire. ROFL 

Well yes...but what else could they have kept it then Embarrassed. In fact I have always wondered why the English title was 'Goblet of Fire' in the first place. Wouldn't it be better to name it HP and the Tri-Wizard Tournament. But then maybe JKR did not want to give out much through the title Ermm

Harry Potter and The Order of the Pheonix:

Hindi: Hairi Potar aur Mayapanchi ka Samuha: (Harry Potter and the Order of the Illusion Bird)

I'm sorry this is just too much. ROFL 

LOL...It has a nice ring to it but I feel they should have left it as 'Phoenix'. Big smile

Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince:

Hindi: Hairi Potar aur Haf-Blud Prins

Isn't this the same as English? In Hindi it should be Hairi Potar aur Aadha-Khoon Rajkumar. ROFL 

Exactly...I have no idea either!!! LOL

Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows:

Hindi: Hairi Potar aur Maut ke Tohfe

Maut ke Tohfe...that's Death Present. ROFL 

I know but they must not have found the Hindi counterpart of 'Hallows' Wink LOL


@Blue: My view on your views LOL

Also, do go through my previous post, I'm sure you'll find it difficult to breathe laughing Wink

With Regard to PS:

A little work on making the book relevant to the Indian cultural context would have gone a long way in making the book more accessible to its intended audience.


There are a few disjoint, weak attempts to throw in some cultural relevance. The names of the four Hogwarts houses have been translated/substituted to what might be more palatable to the Hindi readers. So Gryffindor becomes GarudDwaar, Hufflepuff becomes MehnatKash, Ravelclaw becomes CheelGhaat while Slytherin becomes NaagShakti. Attempts like these are very inconsistent which makes them a little annoying... for instance, while Quidditch stays Quidditch, Chasers become Dhaavak, Quaffle becomes Toofan LOL, Keeper becomes Rakshak, Bludgers become Pahalwaan (LOL), Seeker becomes Khoji and Snitch becomes Sunehri Gaind. The Mirror of Erised (etymology: desire written backwards) also became Shihawhk (which is basically Khwahish written backwards and thus honors the authoress' original intentions even if it is awkward to end a word in devnagri with "half" a 'kh').
