    roll-to-roll = ????

    our bonders are designed to process both cut single transfers as well as roll-to-roll formats.

    1. What does the sentence mean?

    2. What does "roll-to-roll" mean?

    3. Could I translate it from English to Chinese directly?

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    It's a method for creating electronic devices on a roll of plastic: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roll-to-roll_processing
    I would check to see the actual term used in Chinese. To be honest, it wouldn't make much sense in English to the average speaker as it's a specialised term and not obvious in its meaning. The same may be true in Chinese.

    It makes sense to specialists, but the average speaker would have no idea what it meant. Specialist language is for specialists and often means little to non-specialists.

    'Roll-to-Roll Process' translates as 「卷对卷制程」, according to http://baike.baidu.com/view/4386696.htm
