9 consecutive years of making the Inc. 5000 list!

HACKENSACK, NEW JERSEY August 16, 2022 – When she arrived in the United States in 1994, Elisabete Miranda personally experienced cultural and languages barriers that could have resulted in a serious medical infection for her daughter. She eventually made it her mission to improve health outcomes by facilitating linguistic and cultural understanding in the life sciences and healthcare industries.

Fast forward to 2022 and CQ fluency is supplying translation services in 170+ languages to some of the world’s largest healthcare organizations and has been named one of the fastest-growing private companies in America by Inc. 5000 for the ninth consecutive year. CQ fluency attributes this continual win to their steadfast support for customers.

“The team at CQ fluency collectively leverages our Cultural Intelligence (CQ) to blend meaning and feeling to ultimately shape health behaviors. I am incredibly proud of our team’s hard work.  Communication and culture play a huge part in the quality of care people receive and I want to thank my team for joining me on this journey to improve lives.  I want to extend my appreciation to our customers as we are grateful for their time, effort and decisions that make us mutually successful.”

Elisabete Miranda, President and CEO of CQ fluency

CQ fluency also attributes their growth to continuous innovation and customized technologies/processes for the highly specialized and evolving needs of their clients.  The companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000 have not only been successful, but have also demonstrated resilience amid supply chain woes, labor shortages, and the ongoing impact of Covid-19. According to Inc., of the tens of thousands of companies that have applied to the Inc. 5000 list over the years, only a fraction make it more than once, and less than one percent have made the list nine times.  Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at
