U/V/W are internationally recognised, and in any case three phases are three phases, it doesn't really matter what they are called. If the machine was made for the US market, check the voltage and neutral/ground configuration e.g. make sure it's not set up for edge-grounded service (although phases would then typically be A/B/C). What do you actually need to achieve here?

If you're working on any American wiring then make sure you have a pocket full of these, they bloody love em.
I used to install a lot of Granutech Shredders and grizzly panels and the motors were always full of them.
