Armenian

 

Unauthorized translation of Armenian translation of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, published by Gasprint Publishing House in 2004. Interestingly, even though only one book was published by a very small publishing company in the small country of Armenia, this book isn't the that hard to find, at least at the moment. I've seen a few copies for sale on larger e-commerce sites and smaller bookseller sites too, but I don't know anything about this book's original distribution within Armenia.

This authorized translation of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone features Kazu Kibuishi's lovely cover art and is simply stunning. This book was published by Zangak in 2016. This edition has a slightly different title than the above unauthorized edition and used a different translator. This edition isn't too terribly hard to find if you know where to look and is sometimes found on popular e-commerce websites.

It looks like the whole Harry Potter set will be published in Armenian, and goodness knows I"m hoping so! I can't wait to buy them all. They're glorious. Again, the Zangak translations are the only authorized Armenian Potter translations.
