I have this site, leginda.de, which is using different paths for every language:

DE -> leginda.de (root)
EN -> leginda.de/en
FR -> leginda.de/fr

Now we want to create a German version of the site, but for Switzerland. For this, we have a different domain: leginda.ch where we will install a new WordPress site. At the end, it must look like this:

DE-DE -> leginda.de (root)
EN-EN -> leginda.de/en
FR-FR -> leginda.de/fr
DE-CH -> leginda.ch
FR-CH -> leginda.ch/fr

It is possible to add at the leginda.de WordPress installation CH as language and link it to the leginda.ch site?

Hi,

Thank you for contact WPML support.

The URL format should be same to all the sites.
This is the base of WPML.

So you can have :
DE-DE -> leginda.de (root)
EN-EN -> leginda.de/en
FR-FR -> leginda.de/fr
DE-CH -> leginda.de/ch
FR-CH -> leginda.ch/fr

or

DE-DE -> leginda.de (root)
EN-EN -> leginda.en
FR-FR -> leginda.fr
DE-CH -> leginda.ch
FR-CH -> leginda.fr

in case if you are willing to go with second method please refer : https://wpml.org/2016/04/use-wpml-different-domains-per-language/

but always note:
The URL format should be constant. you can not change the URL FORMAT according to the languages.
The language url FORMAT should be same across the site.

Hope, that will explain for what you are looking for.

Regards,
