Andreas try this:

Database products MAP description de_DE products_i18n::description_de
Database products MAP description fr_FR products_i18n::description_fr

Please note:
1. The table products_i18n must exist
2. The table products_i18n must be accessible by Interchange.
3.  Note the added "::"

I'm using this MAP thingy successfully for a couple of my clients, so
you must be able to get it to work as well...

Good luck,
