Martin, révéler in this context is not dissimilar to ‘revealed’ in English. 

It  connotes being ‘ made aware of ‘ or ‘ introduced to ‘ someone or something previously unknown or secret - hence ‘ first time ‘.

 “ 3. Faire connaître quelqu'un, le faire découvrir comme quelqu'un de talentueux : Cette émission de radio a révélé ce chanteur. “

 

“ 1. Faire connaître à quelqu'un ou rendre public ce qui était tenu secret : Je vais vous révéler mon secret. “

Bonjour Martin,

We took a look at the English translation and have amended it accordingly.

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !
