I see 3 possibilities
1) New American Bible, Revised Edition
2) New Revised Standard Version with Apocrypha
3) Pseudepigrapha (New English)
Which of the above possibilities gives me the most complete set?
PS. I do not understand Greek, so an English Version is sufficient.
I would prefer a German Version, but I have the impression, they are not as complete as the above.

Thus, in your case, Henoch (1Enoch) a Jewish Apocalyptic work has been traditionally identified as pseudepigrapha. You can find this text in Pseud-T/E.
**EDIT: In case you are unsure of the *-T/E nomenclature, any module that ends with -T indicates that it's as morphologically tagged text. As an accompaniment the -E is an English translation of said tagged text.**
As for Ben Sira and 3/4 Maccabees, you can find those in NRSV.

... Accordance unfortunately most of the time does not offer the Apocrypha when it is an option in a translation (notable missing ones are the recently released ERV, as well as ... NET Bible,... ).
The apocrypha is a separate module from NET, i.e. the NETS (A New English Translation of the Septuagint).
NB: As Sean R points out, the translation teams for NET and NETS are different, the latter comprised of Septuagint scholars.

The desire was for Sirach, 3 & 4 Macchabees, which are in the Septuagint. Of the requests texts, NETS lacks only Enoch (which is in the Pseudepigrapha Accordance module).
Of course, NETS would also include the 39 OT books in NET, but in translation from the Greek LXX, not the Hebrew/Aramaic OT. Of the the remaining books in NETS (LXX), some would be termed apocrypha by some, deuterocanonical by others.

Seems to be quite complicated, at last they are available in English, in German, it's seems to be impossible.
