Encarta was abandoned in 2009 because everyone uses Wikipedia. But I need a software similar to Encarta or Britannica.
I'm installing some software on a Windows 7 laptop that belongs to a 10 years old girl. Her parents don't have Internet yet. They asked me to install some encyclopedia for her that would work offline until they get Internet working.
My requirements are:
- Free encyclopedia that works on Windows 7 32 bit, not necessarily open source.
- It has to work offline and updates itself when connected to the Internet.
- Maintained and updated.
- No adult content, suitable for kids.
- Big plus if it has features for kids. If I remember correctly, Encarta had a version for kids and there was a software that taught maths for kids too.
- Big plus if it supports many languages, the kid is a native Arabic speaker, she's taught English and French at school.
