    Hello!:D

    I'm trying to find the exact word or expression for 'une fois qu'un secret est dévoilé'...

    I read lay bare and impart and out and unveil but I don't know which one would be appropriate...

    Some help, please:)

    Once a secret's out

    An unveiling is when a painting or other art project is shown for the first time

    Once the secret is out...but the context could make a difference, too.

    the context is simple. Elle has a secret that could put her life in danger. So when she teams up with the enemy, she has to be careful because (I'll write it in french) 'une fois qu'un secret est dévoilé, il est impossible d'arrêter les rumeurs de circuler.':)

    You can say "Once the cat's out of the bag", it is a colloquialism for "Once the secret is out".

    a secret is revealed

    but "out" is the usual informal way to say this.
