Quiz: How Well Do You Know Harry Potter in Translation?

Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone has been translated into over 74 languages. As a reader, you may (or may not) know that translations of fantasy, especially good translations, are rarely word for word. Room often needs to be made for cultural references, wordplay, and in the case of Harry Potter, an abundance of made-up words.

This Harry Potter quiz concentrates on the names of wizarding places and Hogwarts houses in languages other than the original English. If you are curious after the quiz, all the answers and more can be found on the Harry Potter Wiki.
