Frank Martínez of DISCOVER Real Estate – Best Places In The World To Retire User Account
The rental contracts in Nicaragua are only in Spanish, as stated in the law. You can have your bi-lingual attorney check the contract if you want. The local attorney tells you what is written and translates this for you but you cannot sign an English version of the contract because it will be considered invalid.

For Americans, for example, who do not speak Spanish and wish to rent an apartment but who receive a contract in Spanish, the real estate agent or the lawyer can send an email and translate the contract through Google translation so the English-only speakers can see what the contract says in English. They can read it in English and can ask questions and then have changes in the contract. These changes will be in Spanish and the English-only speakers have to sign the draft so they can understand what they are signing.
 
Expats and foreigners have the ability to read the contract in English so that they are not signing with blind eyes.

The rental contracts in Nicaragua are in two languages – Spanish and English. In the case of Nicaragua, if there’s any type of discrepancy or misinterpretation of any of the agreements, the Spanish version would prevail.
Mario Acevedo – Best Places In The World To Retire User Account
According to the Nicaraguan constitution, the official language in Nicaragua is Spanish. Although a contract written in Spanish is enforceable because it is in Spanish, it does not mean a contract in English is not valid.
 
The contract in English would have to meet certain requirements to be translated and be fully valid and at the same time enforceable in Nicaragua.
