Hello,

I will be your forum moderator for legal issues in Chile. Any questions at all about Law in Chile, I would be happy to answer. Besides being an attorney, I am also Chilean and will do my best to help out on the more general topics of Chile. Still in this forum, please keep the topic to legal related issues.

Since this is a legal question....

Does the translation of documents need to be done by specific people in Chile, or can documents be translated outside of the country? I know quite competent translators here in the US.

Depends on what you need translated. There are certified translators in Chile. For example, if you need something to go in to court you are most likely going to want a certified translator.

I would also caution that if it is something to do with specific specialty, chances are you are going to want a translator with experience in that. For example, legal documents or engineering specifications. Typically where the details really matter, and a twist of the phrase one way or the other will count.

We have a very good certified translator / interpreter on our team. She recently did the live simultaneous translation of the Oscars in Chile (think it is her 3rd year), and has been the interpreter for the Dali lama and Microsoft executives among many others in Chile. She is best at corporate and contract negotiations.

I was thinking more along the lines of statutory requirements for legal documents, i. e., what the law says about it.

How does someone in the US deed a house they own in Chile to their child? Both parents and children are living in the US. What are the steps to be taken and how much does it cost in US dollars?

It is the exact same process as buying from a stranger, minus the money transfer. If you search the forum and wiki, you will find lots of discussions of the steps involved.

A shame that no one knows the answer! I don't either but suspect that the translator must be certified by the Chilean government. I do know that that's the requirement in Argentina (some such certified translators live outside the country); it's a stretch to think that laws of neighboring nations are comparable, but it might indicate that I've guessed correctly.

Well, it’s not a stretch to think that somebody knows the answer for Chile, but either they do not access this forum, or they just do not want to say because they have an axe to grind. Translations can be expensive.
