What is this? The only thing I can think of is if you discussing the life cycle of a biological cell. A strange phrase.

That's exactly what it's referring to.

This doesn't seem to be to be an extremely useful phrase, except for those who are going to be biologists in a Spanish-speaking country.

I agree. I don't know why or how DL comes up with some of their stuff.

I think it's mostly culled from their real-world translations.

Yes...I'm confused

this sentence makes no sense outside of cells. I thought it referred to cell phones somehow at first. dumb

Confusing. My mother tongue is not English. I don't understand the English translation at all.

It is the cycle of the cells in our body :) Very important for life

I went with 'cell phone series' because that seems a more common phrase in english. As in the Samsung Galaxy series. Seems like I should get credit. ;_;
