Why are my downloaded magazines the US edition?

Postby SteveThack » Sat Jun 28, 2014 8:32 pm

I live in the UK and have a Gold subscription to Elektor magazine.

However, when I go to the download area and download the electronic copies, I get the US version rather than the UK one. How can I get the UK version?

Thanks.

Since about two years we have been publishing a single English language edition only, with identical content editorially and in terms of advertising, for distribution to all our US, UK and ROW readers. Please review the colophon on page 6.
Although the file prefix of older magazine downloads in pdf format may read 'US', this is still the unified English edition, To avoid confusion the pdf file prefix was changed to 'EN' (for English) recently.

Ah, thanks Jan.

It was the prefix that concerned me, and a quick check showed dollar prices on the front covers. If the content is the same, then I'm completely happy.

Thanks again,

Steve
