Zotero offers plugins for word processing programs like Word and LibreOffice. The plugin adds a Zotero toolbar to your word processor that allows you to add citations to your document while you write. This is what the Word toolbar looks like:
When you download Zotero Standalone, the word processor plugin is included as a part of the process. If you do not see the Zotero toolbar when you open your word processor, in Zotero Standalone go to Edit > Preferences > Cite > Word Processors and install or reinstall the program.
