German term or phrase: verkaufte Auflage
Die aktuellen Zahlen bestätigen dem Computermagazin XX eine Auflagenentwicklung auf starkem Wachstumskurs. Mit einem Plus von 25% klettert die verkaufte Auflage auf 400,000 Exemplare. Sold edition or print run? I'm looking for the jargon used in the publishing world.
