|French term or phrase: culture in homo|
|This is from a report about the need for humanitarian intervention in the eastern part of the Democratic Republic of the Congo.|
"La guerre humiliante et multiforme qui s’y déroule crée des innovations inhumainement cruelles : la culture in homo du VIH SIDA, dont les « chercheurs »de sinistre mémoire sont des hommes en armes qui violent les femmes et les filles et tuent celles qui leur résistent."
|English translation:"in vivo" in humans|
It seems to use "in homo" for "in vivo" in humans. In this context, it means that the rapists perpetuate the life of the HIV virus (like a researcher would do by culturing it in vivo or in vitro) by raping women and contaminating (infecting) them with the HIV.

|I suspected this was a pun but, initially, like Sheila, thought it was alluding to 'homo' as 'gay' and not 'human'. In the end, I decided to paraphrase rather than use 'in homo' in the English version. Many thanks to all and thank goodness for the existence of ProZ!!|

in vitro homosexual culture?
I think this is a pun on 'culture in vitro' and 'culture homo'. I am not sure the best way to translate it however! In any case, it would be something like in vitro homosexual culture.
Hope this is of some help.
