Happy To Translate
Happy to Translate (HTT) provides tools, support, and guidance to our organisation, to deliver a quality service to those who face language barriers. Having a language barrier can make tasks, such as making enquiries or completing forms, a daunting experience and increases the risk of the most vulnerable from accessing the support needed to improve their lives.
Despite language differences, employees can engage confidently with clients whose first language is other than English, through using HTT’s multilingual tools.
