If you want to run the MSI with an MST not using Setup.exe, you need to remove the Condition (SETUPEXEDIR) OR (VersionNT<600) OR (UPGRADINGPRODUCTCODE). From the LaunchCondition table (using an MSI editor like Orca).

Create a batch file with the above commands and place in the same directory as the source files (you'll see both .msi's referenced above in the source directory), run it after the Corel install suite completes and this should resolve the language error.
To install CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 13 (aka X3) with SP1:
Create an admin install:
msiexec.exe /a "d:\CGS13\setup.msi" SERIALNUMBER=XXXXXXX-XXXXXXX-XXX TARGETDIR="\\server\share\administall" /qb
Note that the SERIALNUMBER property must be given in this command line.
Patch the admin image with the downloaded msp file:
msiexec.exe /p "%TEMP%\CGSX3SP1.msp" /a "\\server\share\administall\setup.msi"
Optionally create a transform to remove unwanted shortcuts etc. Note that the documentation shortcuts are installed by EN.msi (launched by setup.msi), so to remove these, edit the EN.msi directly. Note that EN.msi could as well be for example DE.msi if you install in other languages than english.
Note that the users are nagged by a popup when they start the DRAW application. To avoid this, make sure that they get this registry entry:
We had to copy the languages folder manually from the admin install to the local drive:
(admin install)\Program Files\Corel\CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 13\Languages
C:\Program Files\Corel\CorelDRAW Graphics Suite 13\Languages
If I did not copy the Languages folder, we received a few errors in a row regarding dll's
"Unable to load resource DLL: CrlCmnMappedRes.dll"
"Unable to load resource DLL: CRLI18NINTL.DLL"
"Unable to load resource DLL: CRLCVYINTL.DLL"
Followed by a C++ runtime error
We run a locked down environment where users do not have admin or power user rights on the desktops.
we also set permissions on the corel reg key to ensure users can change settings:
setacl.exe -on "hklm\software\corel" -ot reg -actn ace -ace "n:users;p:full"
