    Good morning all,

    I cannot neither understant nor translate the following sentence in all:

    About thirty different types of demonstration-scale fuel cells are sold by the cell store.

    Que veut dire: demonstration-scale fuel cells.

    Je sais que "fuel cell" est une pile à combustible.

    The size of the cells is perhaps not normal size, but big enough to test them. Is this possible in the context? It is unlikely if the store is a normal retail shop. Try running a search for (entre guillemets) "demonstration-scale".

    I think rosieg's explanation is correct. Can échelle be used for scale?

    Je crois que oui, car échelle fait référence à la graduation dans l'appareil de mesure indicateur.

    Who knows:)
