Should "Gisteren heeft het in Nederland geregend" be accepted or is it only allowed in German?

That works, yes. There are many word orders possible with sentences like this, which also makes it more likely that some translations might be missing.

Nope, time comes before place in Dutch. You can use one of the following:

  • Gisteren heeft het geregend in Nederland.
  • Gisteren heeft het in Nederland geregend.
  • Het heeft gisteren geregend in Nederland.
  • Het heeft gisteren in Nederland geregend.
