== Download ==<!--T:2-->
To obtain Wikipedia offline on your computer, you can download the components separately or download a package including all of them:
* '''Bittorent''' (recommended) which downloads the file with a [ torrent software]. Using Bittorrent you save our bandwidth and you get the certainty that your file won't get corrupted during the download process.
* '''Direct download''' which downloads the file directly with your browser. If you already have Kiwix installed on your computer, we recommend to download this ZIM file from the internal Kiwix library.
== Usage ==

If you have downloaded a '''Non-indexed ZIM''' file, then you only need to open it with Kiwix (you have downloaded seperatly) and if you need it, index it in addition.
If you have downloaded the '''Portable pre-indexed ZIM''', you will need to unzip it before using it. One time it's unzipped you can find the Kiwix executable in the "kiwix" directory if you use Microsoft Windows or in "kiwix-linux" directory if you use GNU/Linux.
