The alarm caused by the GDPR has cooled down a bit, but many fellow translators still feel quite unsure about it. Since personal data are also bound to end up in translation memories such as crossTank, do old crossTank entries have to be deleted right away?
The GDPR applies to "the processing of personal data wholly or partly by automatic means, and to the processing otherwise than by automatic means of personal data which form part of a filing system or are intended to form part of a filing system". (Art. 2 (1) GDPR)
But how do I delete all those entries without damaging or, even worse, destroying my entire crossTank?
