I'm studying GRE vocabulary, and there are these two words "sate" and "satiate". I couldn't determine whether they are interchangeable or have nuance. As a foreigner I really couldn't tell. Can somebody explain a little bit? Thanks in advance!

They're synonyms. I don't think there's a shade of difference between them.
