According to the Bristol Evening Post, Bloomsbury plans on publishing both a Latin version (titled “Harrius Potter Et Philosophi Lapis”) and Welsh version (titled “Harri Potter Maen Yr Atbronydd”) of Harry Potter and the Philospher’s Stone this July. Here’s a cute example of the first line of the book in latin: “Dominus et Domina Dursley, qui vivebant in aedibus Gestationis Ligustrorum numero quattor signatis.”
