Fragments are the way to go. Eclipse does it the same way it even splits
the fragments to not download too many languages. I've done that for
some code modules of eclipse 3.3 and its quite easy (e.g. to ship
translations for german, french, ... for the jface bundle it looks like
this [1])

I don't think subclipse can take part in Babel because it's not a
project under the Eclipse Umbrella.

Could you simply pack your language files as a fragment (e.g. I've
translated some other Eclipse-Core-Modules in 3.3) and add this
fragement to your plugin-dir. Even if subclipse ships german language
files I think the ones in the fragement take precedence.
