German term or phrase: einfache Streichung
"Erforderliche Korrekturen werden in transparenter Weise durch einfache Streichung vorgenommen." When data is entered into a paper-bound CRF, and an error is made, normally a line is drawn through the incorrect data and the correct data is entered along with the date and initials of the person making the change. Can "einfache Streichung" mean "crossing out" too? I am used to translating it as deleted or cancelled, but this doesn't seem to be appropriate for a case report form where all data must be accounted for... so what do you think? Crossing out or Deleting? Thanks!

crossing out with a single straight line
Explanation:

If an error is made in the CRF:
Cross out the original incorrect information with a single straight line
Do not obscure the original incorrect entry.
Do not erase an original incorrect entry.
Do not use correction fluid (white out).
Place the correct information next to the original incorrect entry.

The correct way to
make a correction is to cross out the original entry with a single line. This allows the original entry to remain legible. Example:
“cold” sinus infection. The wrong data entry “cold” is crossed
out and the correct response, “sinus infection” is written beside
the entry. Clearly initial and date beside the lined out item. The
correct entry should be circled.
