How do you say "fact" in Spanish.
How would you say "fact" in Spanish, as in the noun. In context: An important fact is...
I've heard hecho, but I thought that was kind of weird.
n 1 (information) hecho m; hard facts hechos innegables; the facts of life el misterio de la vida; to know something for a fact saber algo a ciencia cierta; as a matter of fact de hecho; facts and figures datos mpl y cifras fpl. 2 (reality, truth) realidad f. 3 in (actual) fact en realidad, de hecho.
A fact, something that has already occured = "un hecho"
A fact, a unitary piece of information ="un dato"
An important fact is,
"Un dato importante es"
Well, my sister was doing her Spanish homework and she said something about the word "fact" being "facto" in spanish and I thought that was wrong so I wanted to see. I think it was something like this: "An important fact is that they are fast and deadly."
However if you don't give more context we can't give you a closer translation.
