"Klicken Sie auf Auswahl im Menü Fertigungskonzept Neu, um die TPZ – Kurve und das Startdatum für das Fertigungskonzept festzulegen. Es erscheint das Kontextmenü Datum wählen." Is a literal translation (Context Menu) correct here?

shortcut menu
Explanation:
No, "context menu" is not correct. The "Kontextmenü" is the one that appears when you click with the right mouse button. If the app. you're describing runs in Windows, you should translate this as "shortcut menu", which is the standard Microsoft translation.
