    From That is | Define That is at Dictionary.com

    that is, (by way of explanation, clarification, or an example); more accurately:
    I read the book, that is, I read most of it.
    I believe his account of the story, that is to say, I have no reason to doubt it.
    Literal and exactly the same.

    Also it can be the question:
    - То есть?
    This means that you require more explanation for the previous phrase.
