Updating to match new version of source page
To obtain Wikipedia offline on your computer, you can download the components separately or download a ready-to use package:
* '''Non-indexed ZIM''' files contain only a ZIM file. This allows you to search for articles by title, including suggestions. You may want to [[Special:MyLanguage/ZIM Indexing|index]] later if you need to do full-text searches.
* '''Portable pre-indexed ZIM''' files contain the Kiwix software with a pre-indexed ZIM file. Everything is compressed in a ZIP file. For now, these packages work only with Microsoft Windows , OSX and GNU/Linux(but not for Android). In these packages, the ZIM files may be split into several two gigabytes parts to be compatible with FAT32 file systems(which might be useful in particular with Android).
The '''Portable pre-indexed ZIM''' is always a little bit bigger than the '''Non-indexed ZIM''' file, but if you have enough bandwidth, we recommend users to download it. It's the easiest way to have a ready-to offline Wikipedia reader and this package can be easily redistributed.
