Professional practices Marcos Pinheiro endorses's Professional Guidelines.


I have developed a keen interest in languages from an early age. Beginning with the learning of English in my early youth, I later on decided to study Philosophy at the University, dedicating myself particularly to the fields of Philosophy of Language, Linguistics, and Logic, as well as the study of other languages such as Ancient Greek, Latin, Spanish, and German.

Professional experience

I have been working as full-time translator in various English to Brazilian Portuguese freelance projects since February 2013. Much of this work was done through online platforms, and I currently hold a Platinum Badge at One Hour Translation, having translated over 700,000 words in more than 2,400 projects, proofread/edited over 500 projects, and peer-reviewed numerous other projects for that company. During this time, my work experience has been focused on the education sector and e-commerce, but I also concluded a diverse range of other projects that include the translation of games, subtitles for feature films, workers' CVs, and several legal agreements and contracts.

Other translation projects

From 2014 to 2016 I contributed actively to Survival International, the global movement for tribal peoples, as volunteer translator. Together with fellow philosopher Murilo Seabra, I have also worked intensely on the translation and editing of several essays published by internationally renowned environmental philosophers. The translations are intended to become part of the first environmental philosophy anthology in Brazilian Portuguese, a project that still seeks its final editorial resolution.

What can I do for you?

Philosophy, Environment/Ecology, Social Sciences, and Economics are fields of expertise that relate to my background education and in which I have a continuous, engaging work both as author and translator. More recently, I have also taken up the challenge of subtitling, translating subtitles for dozens of feature and short films, documentaries and animated movies. I would be specially prepared to translate texts in these fields, yet my day-to-day professional work is far more varied. You can check my WIWO entries to see on what kinds of projects I am working at the moment.
