The word for 'prediction' is the same in Chinese, Taiwanese, and Japanese versions (Japanese 予言 yogen differs from Chinese 預言 / 预言 yùyán only in that the first character has been simplified differently). For Professor Trelawney's name, see Names of People and Places.

The title given at the top of each page of the Vietnamese translation is slightly different from that given at the head of the chapter: Lời tiên đoán cùa gião sư Trelawney. . The additional word lời means 'words' or 'sound'.
