Hi there, I just want to know if I can start translating on and later connecting all the translations to seperated domains (, etc.) or that I first need to set-up all the seperated domains to languages before starting translating.

Would like to hear from you really soon, I have an appointment for translating the German site within 30 minutes. So please answer this question asap. Thanks in advance.

I assume that you want to use the Language URL format of 'A different domain per language'. If so there is no problem that you would start your translations in whatever Language URL format WPML is currently configured on your site and later switch to the 'A different domain per language' option.

The option 'A different domain per language' requires server-side configurations. Please read our documentation about it here.
