A) known in English as “Doctors Without Borders," - correct (also provides additional information about Medecins sans Frontieres)

B) the English for “Doctors Without Borders," - the English refers to the people of England. The option should have been "the English equivalent for ...."

C) in English named as “Doctors Without Borders," - "Medecins sans Frontieres" is not named as "doctors without ..." The "doctors without.." is just an equivalent of the French term.

D) “Doctors Without Borders," as they are known in English - the word English is modified by the succeeding phrase - the world's largest independent...

E) “Doctors Without Borders," which is in English - the word English is modified by the succeeding phrase - the world's largest independent...

I think its A.
Because the the "world's largest independent" after the underline should modify "Doctors Without Borders" as Doctors without borders is Independent, International and emergency relief organisation not English. So D,E are out. B,C when read in full dont make much sense. A on the other hand is a much better option.
In B it seems Medecins sans Frontieres is English for Doctors without Borders which definitely wrong.
In C , It is not named in English, It is is English for Medecins sans Frontieres.
Thats why will go with A.
