Translation Jobs

Hi,

What are my chances of finding a job here as a Translator? I am fluent on a native level in English and Spanish and have about two years of experience as a professional translator and about three more freelancing, so all told I've got five years under my belt. I've been in Chile three years and have a Chilean wife and son. I have my RUT and all that good stuff, having recently emerged alive from the barrage of paperwork they fired at me for an entire year.
Now that I'm ready to stop teaching under the table and actually get in with a company work like a decent citizen, is there any hope of finding translation work here in Chile or is it all the same kind of freelance stuff where you post the lowest possible price and somebody comes along and undercuts you as it is on the "black market"? Do companies here actually hire 40 hour a week translators and pay them a living wage?

Any help will be apprecited.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
