To translate a contract of purchase and sale in Panama, it is important to follow certain steps to ensure accuracy and completeness. Here are some general guidelines to follow:

  • Find a qualified translator: Look for a Panamanian professional translator who is fluent in both the source and target languages, and has experience translating legal documents. Ideally, the translator should also have knowledge of real estate terminology and procedures in Panama.
  • Provide the original contract: Provide the translator with a complete and legible copy of the original real estate purchase and sale contract in the source language.
  • Clarify any doubts: The Panamanian translator may have questions or require clarification on certain terms or provisions in the original contract. Be available to answer any questions the translator may have, and provide additional information as needed.
  • Ensure accuracy and completeness: Review the translated contract carefully to ensure that it accurately reflects the original contract and that nothing is lost in translation. Look for any errors or omissions, and ensure that the translation is clear and easy to understand.
  • Certify the translation: The translation must be stamped and signed by a Panamanian sworn translator.

It is important to note that contracts for the purchase and sale of real estate are legally binding documents, and any inaccuracies or errors in translation could have serious consequences. It may be advisable to consult with a Panamanian bilingual lawyer or other legal professional to ensure that the translated contract meets all legal requirements in Panama.
