Hi. Is it correct to say "to estimate to do something"?

Example: We estimate to sell 500 units in the first month.

No.

Say "We estimate that we will sell ..." or "We expect to sell ...".

It is understandable but unnatural. I would use something like "We expect to sell some/about/approximately 500 units in the first month."

Thanks. What about "We forecast to sell..."?

No.

We forecast to sell 500 units in the first month.

We forecast sales of 500 units in the first month.
Our sales forecast shows 500 units in the first month.

Possible, but not as good (in my opinion):
We forecast selling 500 units in the first month.
