I think I understand your question.  Perhaps what you want is not a variable
variable -- but a variable (determined from the context).
Variables always vary depending on the situation as opposed to a constant
which - uhh -- stays constant.  Combine the variable and the constant in a
new variable first with concatenation.

$question_pointer = $xxx . "_name_en";

$get_question_data[$question_pointer]
