Software User Interface Languages for LVD and IVD

Does anyone have any guidance on requirements for translation of interface software for Laboratory Equipment that falls under the LVD and/or the IVDD? I think I understand the requirements for translations of the IFU, but I'm not sure what the requirements for translations of the software interface are. I'm talking about the user interface software - the particular example is modeled after a smartphone, but with less text (but not no text). I hope the question makes sense, but please let me know any more info you might need.

Low Voltage Directive (LVD)
In Vitro Diagnostic (IVD)
Instructions For Use (IFU)

I would say that it depends on what information is conveyed via the software interface - for example, I would say that anything "safety" related should be translated
Also, are warnings provided in text, or by using recognised symbols, such as ISO 60417-X etc
Section 3.1 of the Blue Guide provides guidance that instructions must be in a language that can be understood
