Weighty tome

I have a new headset for my phone. It comes with a manual that is 225 pages long (or thereabouts), of which only 16 are in English.
So what is cheaper? Putting a slim pamphlet in the box when you know which country it is going to (and, therefore, which language is appropriate), or printing a manual that contains 14 different languages?

  1. Surprisingly it’s probably the latter. Means one less step in the full production line (deciding where it’s going) and they probably don’t know where each box goes at the point it all gets boxed anyway.

    The real question is whether it’s recycled paper or not.
