Our culture

At CQ fluency, our culture is passion, and our passion is culture.  We have a very diverse group of individuals who all share one common trait:  We are all curious by nature. It is that high level of curiosity which drives us to both understand different cultures and to help people to better understand each other through our Cultural Intelligence (CQ) process.

We value individuality over conformity because we know the best way to build connections between groups of people is to start by connecting individuals.

Our culture fosters enthusiasm, personal growth, authenticity, happiness and fun. CQ fluency is truly a home for people with shared goals.  Our team comes from all corners of the globe and speak dozens of languages, reflecting the clientele we serve.

This is not your typical translation services company, our open culture allows us to have fun at work and enjoy what we do every day as we continue to develop professionally as well as personally. Our team is innovative and fun (and sometimes wacky, but in a good way) full of inspiration and good vibes.

We love what we do because every day we see  how our services help to connect individuals, organizations and even nations! Through intelligent cultural adaptation, we help people connect, understand, and make healthier choices.
