Apparently (quick research) there is no verb "to hash" in English with the meaning I intended: create the hash value of a file (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hash_function). Surprising, I always had the impression that English is infinitely productive when it comes to creating verbs from other words.
So as my understanding, the hashing function is similar to "mapping" or "indexing". Am I right?
I think I know how to translate it.
