Does anyone recommend a good official translator here in Cancun?
A few days ago, Canuck mentioned someone that is giving English/Spanish lessons. On her business card, it also says that she does translation. I'm not sure if you need something done properly, or if you need it for immigration or something like that, but you can give her a try. Since Canuck already posted her info, I'll do it again, without feeling bad about it. ;-)

What's needed is someone with the official Mexican govt issued stamp, an Official Translator.
I know that Mauricio the Wonder Lawyer has some names of people that he works with, worth a quick call or email to him. (And no, I am pretty sure that Daneen doesn't have "The Stamp", she'll translate non-official stuff though).
We've always used the one opposite the Pemex on Bonampak/Kukulcan. It's a second floor office, sorry cant remember the name of the person but she's always done my stuff for immigration with no problems.
CHRIS ELLIS, the son of my attorney, Jenny Vance, is whatever the official title is for a Federally licensed person that can legally translate any document in the country.
His email is email@example.com.
He has helped me with contracts in both languages on a couple of occasions. He speaks perfect English and perfect Spanish.
Actually, the woman who gives Spanish and English lessons uses the same official translator (perito) that Steve mentioned. I know the building, but not the exact location.
It's also possible to have a non-official translator do the translation and then that translator can get the perito. I know one translator (she had her licenciatura in translation but not the perito) who had an arrangement with someone to do this...not sure of the legality of that though.
Thanks for the help everyone. I appreciate it.
