Q: Mostra-me frases de exemplo com version edition (whats the difference?).
A: They are similar in that they both refer to the name or number of a sequence or series of items. “Edition” is more commonly used for books that may get updated over time. The second edition of a cookbook, for example, will have most of the same content as the first, but with a few more recipes, corrected typos, a new introduction, that kind of thing. (If it’s a series, like a comic book, where each one is not just an update to the previous but is a continuation, those are referred to as volumes).

A version refers more to other objects, like software, toys or other products. Similar idea to editions of books, but we would never use version for books, or edition for toys or software.
Q: Mostra-me frases de exemplo com it is a new version (of or from) ....

Synonyms of "Version" and their differences

Q: Qual é a diferença entre version e edition ?
A: They're basically the same thing, except you'd use version for things that aren't a product/something you'd buy.

Ex. (with product)
This version of the book is easier to read.
This edition of the book is easier to read.

Ex. (no product)
When Mary is upset, it's like she's a different version of herself.
Q: Qual é a diferença entre Please accept the corrected version e Please take corrected version ?

Q: Qual é a diferença entre This is just a downsized version of it e This is just a reducted version of it. ?
A: Both are a little unnatural. It might be better to say:
"This is just a reduced version of it." :)

downsized = to go / shrink to a level smaller
reduce = to make the amount of something smaller

Though they have very similar meanings, they are used differently depending on the subject.

For example, a company "downsizes," they are making the company smaller. You can "downsize" to a small house. You can downsize to a smaller size of clothing if you lose weight (example: "I have downsized to a size 6 pants").

"Reduce" means usually the "smaller amount" of something. For example, you have to reduce the number of employees to downsize a company. You want to reduce the cost of living, etc. You should type more slowly to reduce errors.

"This is just a reduced version" shows that you have a smaller amount of something to make it more simple / easier to understand. "Downsized" version means that you got rid of the older version and made a new, smaller version.

I hope that makes sense.
Q: Qual é a diferença entre Your version of the accident differ from that of the other witness. e Your version of the accident differ from the other witness. ?

No difference in actual meaning. The version of the other witness is the same as the other witness's version.
Q: Qual é a diferença entre version e copy ?
A: Version - is different in some ways maybe good or bad but it's not an exact copy

Other questions about "Version"

Q: "So/ many versions which help to know more." soa natural?
A: "helped me to know more"
Q: Which version is proper: "neither is good" or "neither are good"?
A: In fact, there is a fault in reasoning from the first line of your argument: 'Since you are using "neither", you must be talking about two things, so you should use "are".'

"Neither" in fact makes reference to only one of the two options. Consider the example "neither of us is hungry". It could be explicitly expanded as "neither one of us [...]", therefore demanding the singular. The view that it is plural is common (in this case, "us" is the impetus), but it is not Standard English.

At the end of the day, what matter most in this scenario are the needs of the person who asked this question. In formal contexts, perhaps it should be consistently considered singular, but colloquial usage allows for more leeway.
Q: We have printed versions of twenty or so psychology journals.

What's the meaning of "or so"?
A: After a number like this, it means "or maybe a few more". "20 or so" could be anywhere from 20-29, though it's probably less than 25.
Q: could you please send the electronic version to my email? because I cannot download the original text. thanks a million times. soa natural?
