thank you for your reply and suggestions. I don't have the time just now to
edit that, but I'll do it the next days.

Yep, only en-wickelfalz was intended to be promotional, the other ones rather
for people going to an event, taking a CD, but not knowing what to do with
the new system.
Btw, most of the content was taken from this 'guide':

Ok, I knew there were things not translated, but thought it were only the
comments and titles.

That would be nice!

The titles are translated:
   en-wechsel    - en-switching
   en-wickelfalz - en-tri-fold (see
   en-tipps      - en-tips I
   just took the old names to sort it in my folder.

If you think the flyers are worth the work, of course that would be great.
Though I know nearly no French events where you could publish them, but ok. ;)

I didn't comment on the rest of your posting. I will correct the errors and
suggestions you wrote, but with the rest (missing content), there's just a
simple problem: There's not enough space.
The flyer is currently completely filled, you would have to throw out other
content to make things fit.

Perhaps you could also make another flyer and then separating the current
chapters into several ones, but I don't think that would make it more clearer.

If you think, there's superficious content atm, please tell me or throw it
out in your tex, but cosider the size of the flyer.

Regards, Julian
