Spanish term or phrase: NOTARIA TERCERA
Colombia

My question is how this office fits into the Colombian legal system? Would you translate it "third notary office" (which does not make sense to anyone in the U.S.)?

English translation:yes, Third Notario's Office
Explanation:
...and then put a *footnote, indicating that a Notario is a licensed attorney with higher legal powers and obligations, not equivalent to a notary in the USA. There is no equivalent to a Notario in our judicial system here.

Some people do translate it, and put a footnote - however, some judicial districts in the USA have gone so far as to forbid the direct translation of notary-notario, so I would recommend you not.
