Apache2 .htaccess redirect problem


I am trying to implement conditional redirects on my webserver (Apache2 on debian sarge) in a .htaccess file. This is my first time working with .htaccess at all, so from this point of view I am a noob.

What I want: based on accept-language I'd like to redirect the user:

if accept-language==de
redirect_from: to
elsif accept-language==fr
redirect_from: to
dont't redirect.

I was trying to do so by using something like this:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP: accept-language} (de)
RewriteRule $1 $1/german.html [(option for appending -> can't remember anymore),L]

Of course, this gave me infinite redirects...

But I have no clue how I can do this. Any hints?
