Am I allowed to use LyricsTtranslate.com as a reference? If I do a translation here (at LT) and want to implement it as a CC (subtitle) on a YT video, would I be allowed to add it and add at the end "Translated by [name]", "Find more translated lyrics at LyricsTranslate.com"?

Of couse would I never steal or use someone's translation without their approval and permission, I focusing on my translations, but do I have permission to use LT as a reference (for exempel in the subtitle of a YT (music)video)?

Hello,
We can't speak on our users' behalves but I'd suggest you speak with translators before using their translations as a CC. If and when they agree, make sure to credit them.

I appreciate your help but the question was more if I am allowed to use LyricsTtranslate.com as a reference, as I was given an exempel for above. I refer only to my own translations.

Thanks for your help again! Appreciate it a lot!

If it's for your translations, then there's no problem. You do pretty much what you want with your translations and as the website is public, I can't see why you couldn't put your translation on another platform, especially considering none of us gets paid or has a contract with LT.

In case you want to put someone else's translation on your subtitles, the best thing you should do is to ask for permission. I saw my translations more than once on YT (either in the subtitles or in the comments) and I really don't care what others do with them, so it's fine even if they don't ask, but some would think otherwise.

In short: yes, you can use LT as a reference.

If the translation is yours you don’t need anybody’s permission to use it.
If by “reference” you mean if you can link the lyricstranslate page that has the lyrics, first of all there is no point to it, but if you want I don’t think anybody from lyricstranslate.com will sue you since you might generate traffic for them.
