Harry Potter fans have the promise of more wizarding adventures after JK Rowling launched a mysterious website called 'Pottermore'.
近日JK罗琳推出神秘网站Pottermore,哈利迷们有望继续魔法经历。

The project was unveiled when Rowling set fans a series of clues, asking them to enter 10 sets of coordinates into a site called secretstreetview.com. A letter could be found at each location, spelling out the Pottermore name.
罗琳为粉丝设置了一些线索,请他们通过10个定位设置进入一个名为secretstreetview.com的网站,直到这时,整个项目才公之于众。在每一个位置都能找到一个字母,拼凑起来就是Pottermore。

The website bears Rowling's signature and the message: "Coming soon..."
该网站有罗琳的签名,同时还留有信息:即将开放。

Her lawyer, Neil Blair, refused to reveal what the website would contain, saying only: "This is not a new Harry Potter book."
罗琳的律师拒绝透露网站的详细内容,只解释说:“这并不是哈利波特的续集。”

It is rumoured that the interactive site will be a meeting place for fans offering games, a Harry Potter encyclopaedia, readings by Stephen Fry and competitions. Fans will also be able to buy the books.
有谣言称该互动网站将是粉丝们的集散地,大家可以在这里互相推荐游戏和关于哈利波特的百科知识,史蒂芬•弗莱的作品和相关比赛。粉丝们还可以在这里购买书籍。

Potter fansite The Leaky Cauldron has been granted a sneak preview of the content and described it as "one of the most amazing, engaging and breathtaking additions to this fandom imaginable".
哈利迷网站The Leaky Cauldron已经授权公布了预览内容,这些内容被视作“最令人惊叹、最丰富和最令人激动的影迷想象空间之一”。

"Even though this is not a new book... it is something equally exciting".
“虽然这不是一部新书,但也同样是令人激动的东西。”

The Intellectual Property Office granted a trademark registration to film studio Warner Bros in January last year for the name 'Pottermore.' It covered online games, chatrooms, film clips and literacy programmes.
英国知识产权局已经在去年一月为华纳兄弟的电影制片厂的名字Pottermore授予了注册商标,这一商标覆盖在线游戏、聊天室、电影短片和文学项目。

Earlier this year, Rowling agreed to the release of her books for Kindle and other electronic readers.
今年早些时候罗琳同意在Kindle和其他电子书上发行她的作品。

She described e-books as a "godsend" in certain circumstances but added: "Print will never die. There's no substitute for the feel of an actual book."
她形容电子书在某些特定场合下是“天赐之物”,但同时也强调“印刷书籍不会消失。没有什么能替代触摸书籍的美妙感觉。”

Rowling published the seventh and final Harry Potter book in 2007. It sold 11 million copies on the first day alone.
