PDL means "printer description language". It is any language that a printer can understand, such as PCL, PostScript, ESC/P, etc. Hence there is no "PDL" converter software, nor are there any "PDL" drivers.

Which PDL does the printer actually use? As it works on unix systems it is probably either PCL5 or PostScript.

Alternatively, tell us more about the problem. What is the printer make/model? What is the label software? What printer does the label software think it is talking to? Does the label software run under Windows, or is it a DOS application?

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

I don't feel this deserves any points, demazter. I could not provide any information, as there are far too many questions left open.
