Harry Potter terms translation

Has anyone out there read Harry Potter translated into Hindi, tamil or any other Indian language? If so, could you tell me what are the translations of such terms as "magic", "spell", "incantation", "curse", "wand", "potion" into the Indian languages? Do the translators use Sanskrit terms such as "siddhi", "mantra", "tantra" etc.? Please tell me, it is very important for a research i am doing.

I have no idea, but you can buy those versions online and find out for yourself.

The problem is I cant read Devanagari script, so I cannot check these translations...
