Words count. If you say "solution A was diluted 1:2 in solution B", it means "1 part of solution A in a total volume of 2 parts". If you say "solution A and solution B were combined in a 1:1 ratio", it means "1 part of solution A was mixed with 1 part of solution B", which, in this case, results in the same final solution.

This equivalency is not always the case, however. If you say "solution A was diluted 1:4 in solution B", this is not the same as saying "solution A and solution B were combined in a 1:4 ratio", because in the former case you have 1 part of A for every 3 parts of B in a 4 parts final volume, whereas in the latter case, you have 1 part of A for every 4 parts of B in a 5 parts final volume.
