Translation from German?

I came across a document in German that I'd like to translate to English. Automatic translation allows me to understand most of it but the following is gibberish to me. Can someone help? Thanks.

Sofern das Programm einen
eigenen (Seiten-)Kopf 'von
sich gibt'.

If the program has a
own (side) head 'of
gives oneself '.

Huh? What on earth does that mean?

Insofar the program emits it's own (page-) header.

YMMV,
Ralf.

I'd say "provided the program gives it's own page header".

But more context could be helpful for a correct expression

Your translation makes perfect sense in the context of the document. Thanks! Knowing French and Italian didn't help a bit in this case! :lol:
