I think you're right, roughly half of his output is available in English (albeit in translations of greatly varying quality), and good amount is available in German out-of-copyright turn-of-the-century translations.

Some titles, though, like Mistress Branican, I can only find in French. Still, who knows, maybe that'll be incentive enough for me to get back to learning French...

I assume you know about the Jules Verne Virtual Library at ?
