Russian Potter's fans are outraged with new translation
A new book about Harry Potter demonstrates battle between good and evil. Meanwhile, Russian-speaking fans are fighting over each other for the best translation. Publishing house “Azbuka-Atticus” decided, that Mariya Spivak will translate the book, however, the majority of readers are outraged by her approach to translation, for example, she adapted names of heroes to Russian, so they became pretty weird.
As translators and Potter’s fans (Yes, we are, and we are not ashamed of it! We also watched “Game of Thrones”! :) ) we also like the familiar translation.
