you don't show enough of your input to really help.  In particular,
where do you have the entity references?  (you show them appearng
immediately after the entity declaration, but that presumably isn't
where they appear. Also where in the XML do you record which are the
german texts and which are the english ones?  The entity names end in
_DE and _EN but entities are expanded _before_ XSLT starts, they are
just a macro pre-processor syntax. So XSLT just sees the XML that
results from expanding the entities and never sees the entity names.

So, somewhere in your source xml or your stylesheet you must have a
syntax that specifies which language you want, and somewhere in your xml
that holds the language texts, you must have some syntax to say which
language it is for. The details of what XSLT you use to tie these
together depend on the details of where the information is specified,
but you haven't given any information.
