Translator Silent on Upcoming “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows”
Feb 22, 2007
Harry Potter fans who attended the Jerusalem book fair yesterday had the opportunity to meet and talk with Gili Bar-Hillel about the process she used while translating the Hebrew editions of the books.The AP reports fans were also hoping to hear a bit more about the final installment of the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, but were met with disappointment as the translator refused to divulge what she does know.
The book fair teased fans by hinting that Bar-Hillel might give some educated guesses on the content of the seventh book, but she wasn’t talking.
“I know one single shard of information, but I’m not allowed to reveal it,” Bar-Hillel said. “And I don’t like to make speculations.”
