Hi everyone,

We have various videos talking about new features in LibreOffice 5.1, but I was also thinking about making a general purpose video explaining what the software is, what it does, how it's developed, why it's important and so forth. Here's a script I've put together -- any feedback would be welcome!


LibreOffice is a fully-featured office suite including all the tools you need to get your work done quickly and efficiently.

Writer, the word processor, lets you create complex and attractive documents with its powerful styles system.

Calc is packed with professional features and built-in functions to help you manage spreadsheets with ease.

Impress is an outstanding tool for creating rich and effective presentations, to really get your message across.

Draw lets you produce anything from quick sketches and diagrams to complex plans and leaflets.

In addition, LibreOffice includes other valuable tools like Base, a database front-end, and Math for editing equations and formulas.

LibreOffice is built around the Open Document Format, a fully open and standardised file format that guarantees access to your data forever. But it can also open and save proprietary files from other office software.

And even with all these features, LibreOffice is completely free to use, share and modify. It's open source, so anyone can help to improve the suite and add new features.

And thousands of people have done so: LibreOffice is developed and supported by a worldwide community, and it's available in XXX languages, helping to bridge digital divides across the globe.

Tens of millions of people use LibreOffice every day, in homes, schools, workplaces and government departments. And for companies that want to switch to LibreOffice, commercial support and migration assistance is available.

So try it today: join us at, download the latest version, and get productive with open source, open standards, and full control of your data.
