No, you normally fill out a KK form for transfering a domain to a new
host. Changing the owner at the same time is normally to difficult.
So I would propose:
Well the original owner (German) to change the owner to your customer
(with address etc.) and then your client can initiate a transfer of
the domain since he is the new owner.
The KK simply outlines "please transfer domain kjahaskdh.de owned by
me (Peter Paul Something), living at kjhkashdkjh" "currently
connected to the DNS at XXX" "to the company YYY which will take over
the domain in a few days". Send this form to the company currently
servicing the DNS for that domain so that he knows to whom the domain
will be transfered and that he will allow the transfer to take place.
Then you can easily request the domain-transfer.
If you have further questions simply ask. Hope my explanations were
not too difficult to figure out :-)
