Is there multilanguage support from this offline installer or we need to download separate installer for different languages?

Jumped from Nod32 to Avast free (around 3 yrs ago). That's because Nod32 didn't remove some trojans that I had on my PC.
Anyways, since Avira also has a free version, I'd like to know how it fares against Avast free.

Avira and Avast are about dead even is effectiveness, IMO. Quite good for freebies also.

Both have become quite bloated also, IMO.

At AV-Test.org click on the HOME USER icon to see their comarisons. In the past year, Avast has gone from excellence to pretty good. Avira has taken its place as a premier free AV program. AV-Comparitves is another objective site.

Thanks for the link to the standalone installer (hard to find it on the Avira website). Hope it's for the latest version.
