To download and install English LibreOffice and the Japanese language
pack, go to:
Go down to the green drop boxes and make sure you see/choose Windows in
one and the Japanese language in the other.
If there is any problems doing that, go down farther and choose "Other
way to download . . .".
Then choose 3.4.4, then Windows. Click on the Helppacks to go down to
the Japanese one.
Here are the direct links, to the Windows download and the the help pack .

The question of "gibberish":
Could there be some font issues where there is not "default" English
system font and the English text is written in using the Japanese glyphs
that are in the font instead of the English letters? I do not know
enough about the Japanese fonts, but I did see one or two that did just
that, though most of the fonts I use for foreign languages are Unicode
so the Japanese fonts are somewhere else.

I am located in Tokyo with a Japanese laptop. The installer recognized my system (Windows) and the
language as Japanese, but when the dialogue boxes openned up to install, the instructions in the
dialogue boxes were written in gibberish with random symbols, and they were therefore unreadable.
I simply clicked on the button where cancel would be and cancelled out. Can you let me know what I
did wrong and how to download LibreOffice with the English and Japanese language packs. (I would
like to have all drop down menus and help menus in English with the ability to use it both in
English and Japanese).
