Can you say "order projections" in English or is this not a commonly accepted phrase?
order projections
Explanation:
The phrase is common enough. Here is an example:

"CFM International executives have revised their order projections after finding an anticipated downturn for 1999 and 2000 hasn't materialized."

I would not use a different term without an overriding reason.
