this could also be possible with a single package if you set some 
variables with lcid, but i havent tried this yet...
Of course the underlying OS language would need to be different.
See: http://wpkg.org/Extended_host_attribute_matching#lcid

Like i said i havent tried this yet, im especially intrested  what 
happens on windows 8 + were you can easily change the default os language.
Does anyone have a tip to display the lcid from the commandline for 

Another idea would be to add a condition and check to a variable in the 
<variable name="PKG_LANG" value="de">
             <check type="file" condition="exists" 
path="%systemroot%\engl.txt" />

This file would need to be place there before of course..., but the OS 
Language wouldnt could still be the same this way.

I am in the same boat, mainly german system with a handfull of english
