    Parallel installation

    Parallel installation allows you to test various versions, without replacing an existing installation of LibreOffice.

    See this information: Installing in parallel.

    Help files

    • The Windows multi-language installer as well as the langpacks do only contain localized UI. By default, LibreOffice uses online help - if you need help files on your disk, please install the helppack for your language. If there is no helppack for your language (because help has not been translated to your language), then you can install and use the English helppack or check the online help in any available language.
