English term or phrase: Aha experience
This is also called the Eureka effect.

The eureka effect (also known as the Aha! moment or eureka moment) refers to the common human experience of suddenly understanding a previously incomprehensible problem or concept. Some research describes the Aha! effect (also known as insight or epiphany) as a memory advantage,[1][2] but conflicting results exist as to where exactly it occurs in the brain, and it is difficult to predict under what circumstances one can predict an Aha! moment.

Insight is a psychological term that attempts to describe the process in problem solving when a previously unsolvable puzzle becomes suddenly clear and obvious. Often this transition from not understanding to spontaneous comprehension is accompanied by an exclamation of joy or satisfaction, an Aha! moment.

Does anyone have a suggested translation? Should I simply translate it as "Révélation" or is there a more accurate translation?

agree  Elisabeth Richard: garde révélation pour epiphany plutôt. Déclic est suffisamment familier pour correspondre à 'Aha!'. Dans le même registre, je propose "faire tilt" mais la formulation risque d'être plus compliquée.
