Hi, can anyone help me translate the phrase "obtenir a contraluz" and "contrafacticamente"? Couldn't find them in any online dictionaries and need a translation ASAP.

Thanks in advance!

i need more information Jun 16, 2003

I looked for "contrafacticamente" both in Maria Moliner and DRAE and I couldn't find it. Maybe if you gimme the context I could help.
As for "obtener un contraluz": you see something "a contraluz" when the light comes from the back of the object, for instance, when you take a picture of an object or person and the light comes from behind of them: then the object or person looks dark in the picture.
Write the context and maybe I can help you.

Running contrary to the facts Jun 16, 2003

Just off the top of my head:

Contrafacticamente = Running contrary to the facts

Hence:

Counterfact => (?)Counterfactually

Hope this fits into your context.
