1)"That means putting its national legislative base in line with Western standrds."
2)"This would put the judicial system in the line with world judicial norms."
These two sentences are from the same article published in a Ukrainian magazine. In the first sentence "put in line" in the second one it's "put in the line". Which one is correct? Would "standarts" fit better than "norms" in the second sentence?

Does "to put something in line with something else" mean to make it as good as something else I mean to make something of the same standard, whereas "to put something in the line" means that it has to wait for its turn?
