What does the ad say? If it was in German I might be able to muddle through it.

The text under the pics: "Japan, Korea, Ethiopia, USA, Italy, Argentina, Australia, Singapore and Tanzania. Which goes where? (Key on the side)"

I have removed the key to the question, which was printed on the side of the ad [Linked Image]

The lower part of the ad boasts that the company (which offers power and energy engineering services)is active all over the world and is adapted to the local market etc.
You've read it all before [Linked Image]

This was a full page ad in an engineering newspaper. The quality of the scan isn't very good because it is not printed like a magazine but like a newspaper.

Well the American (A) and Japanese (D) plugs are interchangeable.

Only difference is the "typical" Japanese plugs is non-polarized but both are available here in the USA. [Linked Image]

As far as Korea is concerned, you're just as likely to see (G) or (H) depending on the cordset the appliance manufacturer feels like using. Korean residential electrical service has two round-pin sockets, 220 volts at 60 cycles, Live-Live with no ground.
