HTT gives us a single recognisable LOGO that helps Edinburgh City Council comply with our equalities obligations and provides a consistent quality in delivery of customer services. Its benefits are particularly useful in printed leaflets where the single logo and short script greatly reduce the space needed to get the necessary translation information to our customers. The tool kit and training resources are great too.
