Hi Kathryn,

Under some (not all) European CE marking directives (such as the Machinery
directive), you are obliged to supply documentation related to product
safety, and this has to be in the language of the destination country.
Basically it depends whether the country you are shipping to is a member of
the European Union or European Free Trade Association, the nature of your
product and which CE directive(s) which apply to it.
