Spanish term or phrase: "Bolsa de Valores" after a company name
Appreciated if I can get some of your thoughts on rendering a company name. Obviously one wouldn't translate the actual name of the company, but what about those that have additional phrases after the name for example "Bolsa Electronica de Chile, Bolsa de Valores y Afiliada" (where the official name seems to be only the first part of this) - would you translate the second part of this or leave it all as is?

Explanation:
It certainly looks like the legal name is "Bolsa Electronica de Chile, Bolsa de Valores y Afiliada", to judge from their financial statements and other filings. So I would not translate it.

agree  AllegroTrans: You could put an explanatory translation in brackets where the company name first appears in the document

  -> Thanks. I think that would depend on the type of document and the intended readership.

agree  Paola Pantaleon: Explanatory translation in brackets could work depending on the type of document.

agree  Robert Carter: Although going by the document you reference, "y Afiliada" isn't part of the name, so it's translatable.
