I am a literary translator, editor and publishing consultant, helping authors reach audiences in English and in Spanish. My services range from looking at the big picture (substantive editing) to the smallest detail (copyediting). With over twenty years of experience, I bring a wealth of expertise to help you succeed.

My published fiction translations have won the Alicia Gordon Award for Word Artistry in Translation and been nominated for an International DUBLIN Literary Award.

Here's what a few of my clients have to say about me and my work:

I know many professionals but only a few who invest such passion and commitment in their work that it becomes something greater. That's precisely what I found with Lisa: professionalism, passion and commitment. -Rodrigo Vidal, writer

I have been impressed by Lisa's professionalism, expertise and depth of knowledge of international publishing. She is easy to work with, very responsive, hard-working and an excellent communicator. I heartily recommend Lisa to authors, experts and business professionals. -Martha Bullen, Bullen Publishing Services

Lisa Carter is exceptionally versatile, capable of rendering a variety of texts into dazzling English. I recommend her highly. -Christina Morgan, Agent and former editor with Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
