More than one language packages

If to take the regular version of OOo one can install more than one language packs.
Thanks to the extensions concept of OOo.
After that it is possible to switch the gui between localizations supported by these language packs. Application restart is necessary.
Will this work also with OOo Portable?

Any idea if installing additional language packs
and switching OOo GUI between from one localization to different one
in run-time will work for OOo (now Libry...) Portable?

Quick answer is NO

Because the language pack installation is no asking for which OOo instance the pack is to be installed. It
sees only the system local OOo installation and offers a modification, repair or removal for it.

Any idea how could be the other way to have installed more language packs in order to be able for switching between them in run-time by the user (Tools->Options->Language Settings->Languages->user Interface)?

With stationary OOo it is no problem when having the needed language packs installed.

Found solution..

is to synchronize up the OOo Portable with its local counterpart where needed language packs already installed.
To get them in sync by copying appropriate files.
I did perform it and it seems to work. I can switch the OOo GUI language in mentioned Options field. However, I can't name now all the files had to be copied into Portable installation.

If one knows for what languages the LP's are installed it is simple to know which files must be searched for while merging the two OOo installations. It is a naming pattern. Search for all files with language abbreviation in the file name. Plus files with the string like "lang" and "pack" in file name.
