Italian term or phrase:L'etichetta esce per il lato lungo
Contesto: macchina etichettatrice
"L'applicatore di etichette rilascia (dispenses) l'etichetta -da applicare sul flacone- per il lato lungo"
The label is applied to the phial (or bottle, or tube) lengthwise.
Explanation: The labelling machine obviously dispenses labels in such a way that the label is then read holding the container horizontally, and not vertically, as is the case with a number of medicines.
