Today I was reading Wikipedia and I found that they have mentioned that translation of Harry Potter into Sinhalese is unofficial, but I found that book was available to buy over sarasavi.com.
I’m just curious to know whether anyone know about this book(ISBN 9555732866). Also some trivia says Tamil translations are expected to hit the market around 15 January 2008.
There is no doubt; it’ll bring pleasure and happiness to our local children, if we can get these books in Tamil and Sinhalese. One of the reasons I learned or in other words improved my English is by reading Rowling’s work.
Even if there are some companies to translate this book, they have to have many problems, specially the black market problem. Nobody seems to care about intellectual property in Sri Lanka. Hope soon we can get these books in our languages.
