In vitro means in experimental conditions; in the lab

As Andrew said, but the degree of in vitro relates to the experiment. Growing cells in vitro means growing cells in cuculture vials, hence out of their organism, but in vitro translation, means preparing test tube with purifies ribosomes and all enzymes and chemicals necessary for translation, without living cells.

So In your case, the question means "if we do break the cells ans purify entire and intact organelles can they work in our test tube?"
