How is 'lord' translated?

In English, 'lord' refers to a person with power and authority, a man of either noble rank or high office. The word is also used for the Christian God. The title of the chapter imparts a tone of grandeur and menace to Voldemort's name but not all translators actually translate it. The Chinese-language translations and the Korean translation simply call him 'Voldemort'.

For a note on Voldemort's name in Chinese characters, see Names of People and Places. Note that the Vietnamese translator misspells 'Voldemort'.

How is 'servant' translated?

A servant is a person who serves another, usually in a domestic capacity. It is associated with a subservient mentality or demeanour. It becomes clear later in the series just how much Voldemort demands of his 'servants'.
