It's not clear to me why you are concerned with the prefix. 

I assume that when you wrote this:

<global-element
    xmlns:fr="http://www.somedomain.com/fr"
    xmlns:en="http://www.somedomain.com/fr"
    xmlns:de="http://www.somedomain.com/fr"
    more-attributes=". . ."

you really meant

<global-element
    xmlns:fr="http://www.somedomain.com/fr"
    xmlns:en="http://www.somedomain.com/en"
    xmlns:de="http://www.somedomain.com/de"
    more-attributes=". . ."
 >

and then your code above would become something like

<xsl:variable name="fullname" 
              select="QName(concat('http://www.somedomain.com/', $lang),
$name)"/> 
<xsl:for-each select="$source">
   <xsl:value-of select="if (string(@*[node-name() eq $fullname])) 
                         then @*[node-name() eq $fullname] 
                         else @*[name() eq $name]"/>
</xsl:for-each>
