English translation:appellant/appellee
Explanation:
Revision refers to the "higher" form of appeal which goes to a mistake of law (see Zivilprozessordnung, Titel 3 if I am not mistaken).

The parties to appellate proceeding are referred to as appellant (the one who filed for appeal) and appellee (who will be defending against the appeal.)

Explanation:
Romain's Dictionary of Legal Terms says: Revision is an appeal on points of law. Revisionsbeklagter: is "respondent in an appeal on points of law" and Revisionsklaeger is "appellant in an appeal on points of law". YOu can of course shorten these to respondent and appellant as long as the context is clear enough to emphasize that you are dealing with an appeal on points of law.
