Yes, I think I was somehow tricked by a missconception I had
in mind.

The ORDER BY is defintely superflous - I just used it for
the mail.  The GROUP BY is the problem - if you use it,
you get several rows (featuring the different versions)
and MAX does not work on this result.  If you levae GROUP
BY out everything is fine.  My intend was to find out
the maximum version of a description translation for
each language - but this probably does not work this
way and I just need a TEMPORARY TABLE where I can afterwards
obtain the maximum value.

Sorry for the noise
