Could sign them, they be worth loads more then :lol:

The problem here is, everyone's going to buy a English copy because Exxos is in it, but how many will buy the next issue?

Makes setting up and sending out a English copy a bit of a issue, unless they get them printed here (are presume there printed in Germany?) and someone distributes them or something?

I was under the impression it may have been a permanent fixture (obviously depending on continuing sales).

I thought it was a one off?

As you said sales would be a big problem, no point printing them or getting them translated which I presume is a big thing if no one is going to buy the things.

Then again I buy Farmers Weekly... in the middle of a inner city ghetto so :lol:

Who knows there might just be some people hidden out there who would if they only knew about it :D

I don't really know how often the magazine comes out... But I guess even past issues could be translated to English if there was enough interest.

So while this is a German only magazine, its creator told me he can certainly do a English version if there is enough interest. The cost of the magazine is very reasonable and is below £10 including postage!
She.

I think there are some misunderstandings. 20 magazines is the minimum order by the company responsible for printing. The more you order, the cheaper it gets. The price above is the result of about 80 guaranteed orders + no profit margin.

I also write most articles. That's one reason for the irregular schedule and omission of various topics (e.g. MIDI). Other magazines manage to be released in two languages, but these mags usually have a couple of people working on the magazine and not one person doing almost everything.

There's actually a special issue coming after the next issue, but it's going to be even more German than the magazine already is ;)
