projects on hold


Explanation:
Just another alternative. We'd normally talk about 'putting projects on hold' rather than 'freezing' them.

to put something on ice


Explanation:
If you would like to get away from the telecoms associated expression "on hold", and get back to the "chill" of the German text, we do also often say "to put something on ice". It would depend on your context whether you could use this expression.

Perhaps:

"project plans that have been put on ice"
