Ir + a

Hace 2 años

How does hace 2 años translate into 2 years ago? Does hacer have meanings other than to do or to make or is it one of those phrases that doesn't translate directly from english to spanish?

Listo

Listo means both ready and clever. How do you know when it means which word? For instance if I said "soy listo" could that mean both I'm ready and I'm clever?
