'''Kiwix''' is perfect to read for reading '''Wikipedia''' offline. In order to read and enjoy the Wikipedia articles offline, you will need:
# Kiwix (the software)
# The [ ZIM file] with the content of the specific linguistic Wikipedia the user want (for example in e.g. English).# Optionally, the pre-index allowing fulltext ZIM file allows full-text searches.
== Download == <!--T:2-->
If you have downloaded a '''Non-indexed ZIM''' file, then you only need to open it with Kiwix (downloaded separately) and if you need to, index it in addition.
If you have downloaded the '''Portable pre-indexed ZIM''', you will need to unzip it before using it. One time Once it's is unzipped you can find the Kiwix executable in the "kiwix" directory if you use are using Microsoft Windows or in "kiwix-linux" directory if you use are using GNU/Linux.
