machining of soft steel
Explanation:
"Bearbeitung" = "machining"

As written in the text concerned, the material to be machined is steel prior to hardening. Therefore, "Weichbearbeitung" is "machining of soft steel".

soft metal cutting


Explanation:
I found a bilingual site of a German university (Karlsruhe):

Verfahrensübersicht zur Weichbearbeitung von Verzahnungen (Unterteilung in spanend und spanlos, Darstellung der jeweiligen Verfahren nach Kinematik, Maschine, Werkzeug und Entwicklungstendenzen)
Verfahrensübersicht zur Hartbearbeitung von Verzahnungen (Unterteilung in geometrisch bestimmt und geometrisch unbestimmt, Darstellung der jeweiligen Verfahren nach Kinematik, Maschine, Werkzeug und Entwicklungstendenzen

itm-serv.itm.uni-karlsruhe.de/VORL/verzahn.htm.

vs.

Survey of the methods for soft metal cutting of toothed wheel work subdivision into cutting and non-cutting treatments presentation of the particular treatments according to: kinematics, machine, tool, potential of development
Survey of the methods for hard metal cutting of toothed wheel work subdivision into geometrical determined and non-determined presentation of the particular treatments according to: kinematics, machine, tool, potential of development

Hope this helps.

Good luck.
