Why did the translator change the proper names?
Reviewed in the United States on July 24, 2019
I love the Harry Potter series and I love to learn more about and of the Scottish language so this seemed to be a very good choice for me. However it was exceedingly disturbing, and in my opinion quite unnecessary, that so many of the proper names of both people and " things" were made Scottish. These names were created with great care by the author and are part of the character concerned, these should not be translated. If there should be a reprint please leave the names unchanged and then I would give the book five stars.
I am Scottish by the way.
