Intertranslations has been a leading player in professional translation services and is one of the main contractors of the biggest translation projects in the European Parliament, the European Commission. The company was established in 1996 and provides translation services specializing in technical, legal, financial, marketing, educational and medical Fields, not only in Greek but also in all European and Asian languages.
Intertranslations holds several quality and data safety certifications, such as ISO 17100:2015 (Translation Services), ISO 9001:2015 (Quality Management), ISO 27001:2013 (Information Technology / Security Management).
Intertranslations had increased requirements for collaboration, communication, flexibility, security and compliance. The main request was the optimization of the company’s productivity, by reducing the long time for support management, committing funds for the renewal of the existing equipment and flexibility to modify the company’s computing power, tailored to the workload of its customers. Last but not least, the company required fast application implementation and deployment and thus wanted to focus more on development while reducing infrastructure overhead.
With many years of experience as a leading company in cloud technologies, Office Line recommended the entire transition of the IT infrastructure on the Microsoft Azure Platform. Through the transition, the company ensures all the benefits of the cloud over “on premise” infrastructure. The implementation met the need for a single platform for Intretranslations partners to communicate and collaborate, which has added increased security and greater levels of flexibility in their daily lives, resulting in an increased company’s productivity.
The company’s data center is migrated to a higher protected environment with controlled access through two-tier authentication, including proxy card access readers and hand geometry biometric readers, that provides high availability and redundancy with data centers located in all parts of the world. In addition, Azure offers service level agreements guaranteeing 99.99 percent up time. Furthermore, a comprehensive approach to migrating Intertranslations datacenter estate. Supports key migration workloads like 15 Windows Servers 2008 R2 VMs, Windows Servers 2012 10 VMs and SQL Server 2012 rehost to Azure.
Microsoft Azure scale the solutions based upon traffic increases, whether this means scaling up or down while paying for only what is used.
Within a short time Intertranslations has upgraded and integrated its infrastructure, thus covering most efficiently the increased requirements for operational functionality as well as flexibility and secure cooperation with all departments of the company and its external partners. Particularly, Intertranslations has met its increased requirements for collaboration, security, communication flexibility, optimization and productivity.
