The LibreOffice Language Pack from LibreOffice_7.0.5_MacOS_x86-64_langpack_de.dmg does not recognize the LibreOffice installation from LibreOffice_7.0.5_MacOS_x86-64.dmg
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install LO 7.0.5
2. install language pack by double click
language pack does not install when opened via drag'n'drop on LO.
language pack can be opened by double click. Before, you still had to disable security checks for installation, annoying as usual. Then you can open tte language pack, confirm to install from an unknown source.
It then opens a first window since it did not find a proper 7.0.5 installation see attachments).
After you select libreoffice manually, the installer claims that this is no valid installation. So it does not install itself.
a release version should install properly

It appears you moved location for LibreOffice.app.
Can you try moving it to the default location (programs folder). And then try installing the language pack again.
that did not make any difference
If you download 7.1.2 + language pack and replace the current LibreOffice in your programs folder with that version are you then able to install as expected?
Recently there were a few changes around how language pack is installed on macOS. There also was a problem on older macOS releases but that should also have been addressed in 7.1.2 so the trouble you report is somewhat interesting.
Please add any error messages you may be seeing.
7.1.2 worked well, no troubles.
BTW, I'd prefer LO versions with pre-installed language packages.
It's always annoying to turn off security preferences for the LO installation and even worse to need an extra installation of the language pack. I'd prefer to have a full language LO version.
Closing as worksforme since 7.1.2 works as expected.
Agree on having integrating language and offering language selection on download like e.g. Firefox handles this problem. Keep in mind though, LibreOffice is quite a large download and then every version would have to be offered in *many* variants, complicating backend work quite a bit. Certainly from a user perspective language packs feel convoluted.
