English translation:to handle is fine or to use or to work with or to hold
Explanation:
to work with a file, to file, to smooth or shape the workpiece with a file, or (if the file in question is more complex than a simple hand file) to address the work with the file, to guide the file onto/over/along the workpiece.

A handle makes it possible to hold the file more comfortably and guide the file more accurately.

to keep a record


Explanation:
It simply means that one creates and maintains a file on the issue at hand. Usually in the German equivalent of a 3-ring binder, which is a 2-oval affair called an "Ordner".
