Explanation:
The fact that they used the quotation marks for "Halbautomatik mit Selbstbedienung", leads me to think that perhaps they consider this an important feature. Here are some more/or differently arranged possibilities with a little more emphasis on the quotation:

. . . "Semi-automatic with self-service" functionality/feature,

operated/controlled by push-buttons (located) on

a well arranged/easy-to-understand/intuitive control/operating panel.
_______________________________________
My choice would be:

. . . "Semi-automatic with self-service" feature,

operated by push-buttons located on a well-arranged control panel.
_______________________________________

The above is three keystrokes longer than the German version.

Explanation:
Controlled through keys on a clearly structured control panel for "semi-automatic with self-service"

It would help if I knew what kind of device this control panel belongs to. But I hope this is of some use to you.

Explanation:

... operated by means of pushbuttons placed in a clearly arranged control panel for "semi-automatic system with self-service".

A fairly literal translation. Depending on the situation "semi-automatic self-service system" or just "semi-automatic self-service" might be appropriate.

Good luck!
