Explanation:
Who could resist such a plea! :-) Anyway, here's my two cents worth:
1. Errata (erratum in the singular) doesn't have to be translated; it's a standard term in publishing meaning "error". If you want to be swanky, you can say "corrigenda" as well :-)
2. Umfangsangabe: depends on the context, in a publishing context it generally simply measn "number of pages". If that doesn't fit, it may be something like " information about the extent of..."
3. Beiordnung: Hamblock/Wessels gives "assignment", eurodicautom "attachment"...bit difficult to say without more context?
4. Preiserläuterung: well, "erläuterung" means "explanation/declaration". I'm only hazarding a guess, but perhaps it has something to do with factors affecting the price, such as terms of delivery? Or with services included in this price? If so, perhaps something like "Prices include..." would fit. But as I say, I'm floundering a bit here.
HTH a bit! :-)
