yes, but the term Taktzahl is mainly found in technical contexts!

in a musical context it often means the number of measures which e.g. build
a verse (in german: die (An-) Zahl (der) Takte

obviously you can say: "Die Nummer des Taktes wird durch eine Zahl über dem
Taktstrich angezeigt" but not "Die Nummer des Taktes wird durch eine Nummer
über dem Taktstrich  angezeigt".

but for me it's ok to go with it!
