Where can i download a duch language pack as the language is not in the installer?

Where can i download a duch language pack as the language is not in the installer?

I prefer my operating systems in English as googling for solutions is easier that way, but i write most of my stuff in Dutch. If i download Libreoffice from https://nl.libreoffice.org/ i dont get a Duch version for some reason, and selecting dutch as a language is not offered trough the installer nor the interface (alt F12). On Mac i found a language pack that fixes this,(LibreOffice_6.4.3_MacOS_x86-64_langpack_nl.dmg) but i cannot find one that works on Win 10 64. Please help me. Thanks!

The Windows installer includes all language packs built, not running Windows myself I heard that simply opening the installer again one can install additional languages. But the offline help pack is a separate installer, choose at the download page (link defaulting to Dutch).

... and the download page links to How do I install LibreOffice? with detailed instructions including screenshots e.g. for Windows, telling how to see and choose installed components.

Nederlandse woordenlijst/dutch spelling https://extensions.openoffice.org/en/... Schrijfhulp / Writing aid https://www.languagetool.org/nl/#libr... dit installeren als de de installatie niet lukt. You´ll need this if the installer complains https://www.java.com/nl/download/wind...

Again: Dutch spelling and hyphenation dictionaries are bundled into Windows installer under Optional Components/Dictionaries in Custom Setup, so downloading and installing an outdated extension form external extensions site is not needed. LanguageTool is a valuable extension, though (as you noticed, it requires Java).
