English term or phrase:promotion copy deck
Terms used in the context of a free game distributed as part of a marketing effort in Germany.
Explanation: Maybe deck is used as a verb. It's better to have the whole sentence in order to translate it.
In computer or video games, a demo is a gameplay recording. The term originates in demonstrational recordings used for advertising, but is also used for recordings by players who wish to show off their skills or some feature in a game.
Reference information: It's an old post, but I was just given an English copy deck for translation into German, and the definition on this website fits nicely:
"A copy deck is a single document [...] that contains all the necessary bits and bobs for a given copywriting project."
Not sure how I'd translate the term "copy deck" just yet, but I checked with our (German) marketing department and they told me to leave it untranslated because they don't have a German word for this either.
It seems to be a relatively broad concept, too. Copy decks can also be an overview of all the things that have to go onto a new website, phone scripts, etc. Anything related to a marketing campaign.
