Asterix and Obelix: translated?

Beitrag: #Beitrag Sofie »


I was wondering whether the names of Asterix and Obelix were ever adapted in any translation. I haven't come acrosse any of these adaptions, but is seems possible nevertheless. Still, I can't find any you?

+a minor change in Polish : the names had to be written Asteriks & Obeliks because there is no 'x' letter in this language.
