I clicked the link to test in Firefox 60.0 on macOS and the page opened in Slovenian, but:
- the top banner displayed unlocalized 3 strings ("LibreOffice 6.1 Help", "Module", "Language" + the list of languages in English (the Google search box is in Slovenian, which is great);
- the bottom disclaimer is in English:

I would suggest:
1- in top banner all strings should be localized except for the items on the list of languages (or they should be in site language + English, like "madžarski / Hungarian" or "Hungarian / madžarski"; maybe the "Language" string could also be dualistic, like "Jeziki / Languages";
2- in the bottom banner at least the donation string/link should also be in the site language, so it should read
Če vam je bila stran v pomoč, nas lahko podprete!

Also, please do make new donation page localizable, it still isn't - already more than a year ...

Cloph is right now mailing to the website list. :-)
We did have some iterations of it just early this year, so in the end,
this hopefully helped to avoid double work. Sorry for the delay though!

patch https://gerrit.libreoffice.org/gitweb?p=help.git;a=commitdiff;h=7f7ccb74ab2b637826d1412ad3e63aa7f0ce296e addresses this issue, and will be available as soon as translations are committed to master

This is also addressed by patch above.

There's another ticket on this topic, where I suggested we have the
German term, and the localized term in brackets next to it. I think that
Buovjaga filed it based on a BZ entry, but I don't have the number at hand
