German term or phrase: zur Empfehlung gewonnen werden
Vor allen Dingen die Offizialberatung müßte zur Empfehlung gewonnen werden, damit auch der Handel
"auf den Zug aufspringt".

Most of all, the(official consultants) müßte zur Empfehlung gewonnen werden, so that the market can also "jump onto the train".

Sorry, but I did not leave out the concept of winning the consultants over; I circumscribed it -- IMHO, depending on the context and/or audience, it might not be advisable to emphasize the fact that one is planning on "winning over" or otherwise attempting to persuade or convince the consultants to deliver a desired outcome in one's favor. (Probably more analysis on my part than was necessary!) My formulation was a bit more neutral in that respect, but I agree a literal translation would not be. That decision would be up to you!
Good luck!

getting a recommendation


Explanation:
The way I understand it is, if the outcome of the "official" consultants' report is a recommendation, that will encourage the industry/market to jump on the bandwagon.
I'm sure you can find a suitable formulation, but that's the general concept as I see it.
Hope this helps!
