demonstrates, explains
Explanation:
It's hard to know for sure without more context, but it seems to me that, since this has to do with installation instructions (how to put something together), you need to use a word that has to do with the verbal process of teaching or instructing.
If you wanted to stick with something closer to "offenbaren" you could use "reveals" too.
