== Chile, an Overview ==
  
{{Non-English|es}}Chile es un país ubicado en el extremo suroeste de América del Sur. Su nombre oficial es República de Chile y su capital es la ciudad de Santiago de Chile.  
+
Chile is a country located on the southwestern part of South America. Its official name is the Republic of Chile and its capital is the city of Santiago de Chile.  
  
Chile comprende una larga y estrecha franja de tierra conocida como Chile continental, entre el Océano Pacífico y la Cordillera de los Andes, que se extiende entre los 17º29'57'S y los 56º32'S de latitud (Islas Diego Ramírez), limitando al norte con Perú, al este con Bolivia y Argentina, y al sur con el Paso Drake. Además, posee territorios insulares en el Océano Pacífico, como el Archipiélago Juan Fernández, Sala y Gómez, Islas Desventuradas y la Isla de Pascua (ubicada en la Polinesia), totalizando una superficie de 755.838,7 km².  
+
Chile comprises a long narrow strip of land known as continental Chile, between the Pacific Ocean and the Andes Mountains , which extends from 17 º 29'57 S and 56 º 32'S latitude (Islas Diego Ramírez ), bordered on the north by Peru, on the east by Bolivia and Argentina, and on the south by the Drake Passage. Also, Chile oversees island territories in the Pacific Ocean, such as the Juan Fernández Archipelago, Sala y Gómez, Desventuradas Islands, and Easter Island (located in Polynesia), totaling an area of ​​755,838.7 km².  
  
Por otra parte, Chile reclama soberanía sobre una zona de la Antártida de 1.250.257,6 km², denominada Territorio Chileno Antártico y comprendida entre los meridianos 90º y 53º Oeste prolongando su límite meridional hasta el Polo Sur. Esta reclamación está congelada de acuerdo a lo establecido por el Tratado Antártico, sin que su firma constituya una renuncia. Debido a su presencia en Sudamérica, Oceanía y la Antártida, Chile se define a sí mismo como un país tricontinental.  
+
Though Chile claims over one million square kilometers of Antarctica—called the Chilean Antarctic Territory and between the meridians 90 º and 53 º West, which prolongs Chile's claimed southern boundary to the South Pole—this claim is not recognized in accordance with the provisions of the Antarctic Treaty, which without Chile's signature constitutes a waiver by Chile. Due to its presence in South America, Oceania and Antarctica, Chile defines itself as a tri-continental country.  
  
Sus cerca de 17 millones de habitantes promedian índices de desarrollo humano, porcentaje de globalización, PIB per cápita, nivel de crecimiento económico y calidad de vida, que se encuentran entre los más altos de América Latina.<br>
+
There are approximately 17 million inhabitants of Chile, and the per capita GDP and level of economic growth and quality of life are among the highest in Latin America.
