ProZ Team,

I am working on a Risk Management document and I want to make sure I have this term straight.

The definition, as it appears in the document:
Ein Schaden beruht dann kausal auf bestimmten Umständen, wenn diese nicht hinweggedacht werden können, ohne das zugleich auch der Schaden entfiele.

My rough translation:
Damage is causally based on certain circumstances only if these cannot be assumed away without at the same time omitting the damage also.

Very rough, I know. Any help would be much appreciated.

Schoensten Dank!
