That's my Debian box with LANGUAGE set. I have a Fedora laptop that
doesn't have LANGUAGE set and there setting LC_ALL is enough:

$ LC_ALL=de_DE svn
Geben Sie »svn help« für weitere Hilfe ein.

Unsetting LANGUAGE makes LC_ALL take effect on Debian:

$ (unset LANGUAGE ; LC_ALL=de_DE svn)
Geben Sie »svn help« für weitere Hilfe ein.

and LANGUAGE overrides LC_ALL on Fedora:

$ LANGUAGE=en_GB LC_ALL=de_DE svn
Type 'svn help' for usage.
