Is a contract legal if a person who does not speak understand or write English signs a contract buying a car with a minor doing the translation?

The fact that the translator was a minor does not make the contract unenforceable. The key issue is whether the parties understood the nature and terms of the agreement. That is a question of fact, not law, a court could decide in one case that the minor acted as a competent translator and the party fully understood the contract; and at the same time another court could rule that the minor did not understand the full nature of the language and did not translate effectively precluding in the law what is called the 'meeting of the minds'

Put it in the contract if you are buying, the current owner should fix it.

One can own a stock, but trading futures requires one to contract for the futures. Buying stocks gives you ownership (or your own share) in a part of the company that you're buying into. Trading futures, one enters into a contract for a particular commodity instead of actually buying into it. You can then contract to be a buyer or a seller of that commodity.
