Abstract

Disclosed are removable labels that mount to the control panel or other surfaces of an electrophotographic printer or copier. The labels are stored digitally in the machine in multiple languages and printed on demand whenever needed. When the machine is installed in a customer site, labels can be generated in the appropriate language. If a machine is transferred to a different locality where a different language is spoken, the labels can be replaced with ones in that local language. Labels may be placed under transparent covers for protection, or printed onto adhesive-backed material for application directly onto the product. The system provides access to the correct labels at any time without the expenses associated with printing, warehousing, and distributing labels in different languages.
