Is it possible to have two versions of Firefox on one computer, in two different languages?

I wanted to add a version of Firefox in Hebrew onto my computer, so I could practice the language practically. Unfortunately, downloading that overrided my download in English. I would like to know if the computer can only have one language's version, or if it is possible to have more than, perhaps to switch back and forth or just to choose which one to use at any given time. Thank you for the help.

I always run two versions of Firefox, one beta and one stable. There installed on the same computer and have two different languages. Not a problem there. I don't think you can run two identical versions without problems. I gave my two versions radically different names and icons for desktop links and have had no problems.

I don't understand how that works though, to have both versions workable on the computer. I tried to download another language but when I open Firefox from that folder it comes up in English. How do you manage those two versions? Those beta and stable references you make? Thank you for the answers!

You can install additional language packs if you want to run the same Firefox version in different languages like I wrote above.
Select the one(s) that you want to install and click them on the XPI site to trigger the installation. http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/latest/win32/xpi/

The Locale Switcher extension allows to switch the language.
