Good morning / afternoon / evening to you all,

I am doing a SWORN TRANLATION and there´s a typing mistake in the original. It reads CUIP number xxx , instead of CUIL number XXX. (In Argentina, the CUIL number is the Worker´s Identification Number).

Should I translate it as it is (CUIL), or should I add a Translator´s Note at the end of the translation?

Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

Add a Translator's Note wherever appropriate. That is what I do, and it happens often. Put CUIP* [sic] in the text, and the (*) indicates the note.

I think that I would treat it like this:
CUIP [sic: CUIL] [Worker´s Identification Number]: 9999999
