Where a Vietnamese word has been borrowed from Chinese, the original Chinese character is shown in parentheses.

The Quidditch final
Japanese クィディッチ優勝戦ファイナル
Kwiditchi yūshōsen / Kwiditchi fainaru
クィディッチ Kwiditchi = 'Quidditch'.
優勝 yūshō = 'victory, championship'
-sen = 'war, battle, game, match'.
ファイナル fainaru = 'final' (English).
The Quidditch final
Vietnamese Chung kết Quidditch chung kết (終結) = 'final'.
Quidditch (pronunciation: Quít-đit, from footnote).

The Chinese, Taiwanese, and Vietnamese versions are fairly straightforward.

In the Japanese version, the translator uses Chinese characters 優勝戦 yūshō-sen 'championship match' while giving the English pronunciation fainaru in furigana above the text.

For the meaning of Quidditch, see Book One Chapter 11. For the practice of indicating the English pronunciation by using furigana above the main text, see this book Chapter 3.
