to swear its the truth that you know doesn't sound right to me, so if anyone wants to throw me a line, it would be great!

neutral  Adrian MM.: eng.proz.com/kudoz/spanish-to-english/law-general/6005101-diga-cómo-es-cierto-que.html Maybe a good idea, in your own words, to mushroom into the US wording of 'affirm or deny' when the asker is in S.Am. - alt. como es cierto - how *true* it is.
