Harry Potter in Chinese, Japanese & Vietnamese Translation


Chapter 34: The Forest Again


Chinese (Mainland)
Yòu jiàn Jìnlín
yòu = 'again'.
jiàn = 'see'.
禁林 Jìnlín = 'Forbidden Forest'.
See the Forbidden Forest again
Chinese (Taiwan)
Chóngfǎn sēnlín
重返 chóngfǎn = 'return to'.
森林 sēnlín = 'forest'.
Return to the forest
Futatabi mori e
再び futatabi
森へ mori e = 'forest + to'.
To the forest again
Vietnamese (Chinese characters show etymology)
Trở lại Rừng Cấm Trở lại = 'return to'.
Rừng Cấm = 'Forbidden Forest'.
Return to the Forbidden Forest

Fairly straightforward. Two translators (Mainland Chinese and Vietnamese) make explicit that the 'forest' in question is the Forbidden Forest.
