  Illegal copies of OOTP turn up in Chile
Updated 08 August 2003, 11.32
Illegal copies of OOTP have turned up in Chile
Two men are facing police charges over illegal translations of Order Of The Phoenix which turned up in Chile.

People in the South American country speak Spanish.

The official Spanish version of the book is not due out until the end of the year.

But Chilean Potter fans have been able to snap up copies of OOTP in their own language for weeks.

However it seems they could be disappointed with their pirate copy.

According to one Chilean book expert, it's "a really bad translation".

Dodgy

He's urging people not to buy the dodgy copies, saying they will force proper booksellers out of business.

OOTP came out in English in June.

Since then, loads of unofficial translations have been springing up around the world.

Some fans have even put their translations on the net.
