    put it into practice / translate it into life

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to help me to make the proper interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

    As was pointed out by V.I.Lenin in his famous article “Party Organisation and Party Literature” “in contradiction to burgeois customs, to the profit-making, comercialised bourgeois press, to burgeois literary careerism and individualism, “aristocratic anarchism” and drive for profit, the socialist proletariat must put forward the principle of party literature.. and put it into practice….

    There a few other synonymous expressions: translate it into life, implement, put into effect, put into operation.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    put into practice=stop talking and translate the words into action.

    It is also called 'walk the talk'.
    More idiomatically, I would say "put the your money where your mouth is".

    Or "make it happen" or "make it a reality."
