Is there a way to install two PAF (newest version) in two different languages on the same PC? I need to install Japanese and Chinese. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

I know different versions can co-exist (such as V4 and V5). I don't know about two copies of V5.

But maybe we should clarify the reason for this. As far as I know, the only difference between the versions is the language of the labels, not the language for the data. Are you having to share this computer between Japanese and Chinese users or just need to support entering both Japanese and Chinese names?

I remember seeing FHC computers loaded such that there was different icons for different languages. I don't think it was multiple installs. Probably more like a command line switch that causes PAF to come up in a different language. Doing a little googling, it seems like it's just a matter of telling the installer what you want to do.
