Creative Culture 10 year anniversary

Creative Culture is 10 years old!

It’s official – we’re 10 years old this month!

In fact, to be accurate, it was in May 2008 that I decided to start a boutique, specialist cross-cultural consultancy, one that could provide a different choice to the ‘me too’ translation agencies that dominated the market. The company was incorporated just a few months later, in October, taking it from concept to reality.

From very early on, I was keen to support cross-cultural communications not only by providing quality content services, but also by looking at feeding centrally-driven strategies with valuable insights into cultures and local market trends that would allow brands to stand out and prove their relevance on the local scene(s).

And here we are, ten years on, with a fabulous and dedicated team of over 15 based in Victoria, central London, combined with an international network of over 1,900 in-market experts covering 150 languages across 110 countries!

See below for some of our key achievements, and to see what some of our fabulous stakeholders say about us.

I look forward to the next 10 years, and I will keep sharing our success with you as we progress.

“At Creative Culture quality is the key value. CC chooses language specialists very carefully, so clients can seat back and relax while their copy is being transcreated into various languages. I have worked with the company both in-house and freelance and I can tell you that they are very dedicated to what they do!
I wish CC long years of prosperity. Keep on connecting people through great transcreations!”
