You will really know what you get, when you read on inside.


Explanation:
I have had to leave out the "konkret" = concretely, because otherwise the sentence sounds clumsy and you get into trouble with the "inside". I guess it's an envelope or a folder, promoting some product.

"hven" is a typo and should be "haben" = have.

specific / precise


Explanation:
You´ll find specific benefits, reading the inside information-sheet.

or

You'll know your precise benefits, reading the inside specifications.

(das Wort "Innenteil" kommt etwas zu schlicht raus, wenn durch "inside" übersetzt wird)

Ich hoffe es hilft
viel Glück!
