    Although the literal translation is 'I copy and paste', the idiomatic equivalent in English is surely 'I cut and paste'. Not a complaint, just an observation.

    Cutting and pasting removes the text from the original document and puts it on the new one.

    Copying and pasting copies the original (but leaves the original in place) and pastes the copy in the new document.

    cutting (couper) and copying (coller) are two different actions.

    wouldn't copy and glue mean the same thing? My dictionary shows the same word for both.

    Coller can be translated as "to glue" when it involves physical objects and such, but we're talking about a specific process on the computer here that's copying and pasting.

    no matter how many times i listen to it then normal speed audio sounds like 'les phrases'.

      I am listening to the female voice and it definitely sounds like "la phrase." I can't get the male version to play so I can't compare, but it sounds pretty clear to me that it's "la phrase."
