my chi-square result is different from the author's, why?

In this paper published on journals.khuisf.ac.ir "A Norm-Based Analysis of Swearing Rendition in Professional Dubbing and Non-Professional Subtitling from English into Persian",
In dubbed version, translation strategy frequencies:
Translation strategy 1: 31
Translation strategy 2: 79
Translation strategy 3: 169
Translation strategy 4: 0

In non professional subtitle (NPS) version, translation strategy frequencies:


Translation strategy 1: 68
Translation strategy 2: 18
Translation strategy 3: 184
Translation strategy 4: 9

The author got this chi square:
Results of Chi-square Run for Translation Strategies between
the Dubbed and Non-Professional Subtitled Versions
Value 61.827a df 3 asymp sig .000

I got this chi square
Value 12.000 df 9 asymp sig .213

I did this:

Then I input the frequency numbers into SPSS
id pro nps
1: 31 68
2: 79 18
3: 169 184
4: 0 9
I ran the crosstab—chi-square ; the two variables are pro (row) and nps (column).

I wonder why my result is different from the author's?
