No, it doesn't matter whether audacious-lang is installed or not.
audacious-plugins recommends audacious-plugins-lang, so audacious-plugins-lang 
will get installed automatically when you install audacious-plugins.

installed packages", because without this checked Yast everytime tries to 
install several unwanted packages like "packagekit", "apparmor" and 
"pulseaudio". I asume, thats the thing wich does not install plugins-lang ..

You already had audacious-plugins installed, which recommends audacious-
plugins-lang. Because you chose to ignore recommendations of already installed 
packages, audacious-plugins-lang was not installed automatically then

If you would have installed audacious-plugins freshly, you'd have gotten 
audacious-plugins-lang automatically too.

As I already indicated, it is standard procedure to only recommend -lang 
packages, as they are not strictly needed.

Btw, in 13.1 if you uninstall packages explicitely, they will not be installed 
automatically any more, even if you turn off that option.
And you can also lock particular packages you don't want to have installed 
(right-click on a package and select "Taboo - Never install".
