, the Dutch publisher of the Harry Potter books, has listed Harry Potter en het Fatale Heiligdom
as the working title for Book 7. This is not the literal translation of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
and translates as "Deadly Shrine," "Deadly Sanctuary" or "Deadly Saints." The literal Dutch translation of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
would be Harry Potter en de Dodelijke Heiligen

that the Finnish title will be Harry Potter ja kuoleman pyhimykset
, which translates as "The Saints of Death."
