14. FOREIGN CURRENCY TRANSLATION

The accumulated other comprehensive loss account in stockholders’ equity of $81,819 and $144,772 at December 31, 2013 and 2014, respectively, includes the cumulative foreign currency losses of $78,947 and $147,930, respectively, from translating the financial statements of the Company’s international subsidiaries, the change in fair values of the Company’s interest rate swap agreements that are designated as hedges and the change in fair value of the Company’s available-for-sale securities.

All foreign countries where the Company has operations are non-highly inflationary and the local currency is the same as the functional currency in all of the locations. Thus, any fluctuation in the currency results in a cumulative foreign currency translation adjustment recorded to accumulated other comprehensive loss.

Below is a summary of the impact of translating the financial statements of the Company’s international subsidiaries as of and for the years ended December 31, 2012, 2013 and 2014.
