I had a look at your site and what you say.
I use the xml for Google.
The xml of the sitemap is the same for all the languages in the back of xmap. ... &no_html=1

but after literally messing around for a few minutes I found one of the pages opened with this in the address bar ... /view,xml/

I have submitted this to Google - it was accepted.

Notice there is a language parameter in it - en-GB

I altered this to ... /view,xml/

this comes up with the Spanish version and fr-FR the French and de-DE the German as I would predict.

I submitted all of these variations to Google via the Webmaster tools.
Guess what they were all accepted.

Looking at the format I would have thought this would work for other sites using xmap.

Give it a go - Remember my short language code is the same as the Joomla-filename in the back of Joomfish - so you will probably use for your Spanish site version., ... /view,xml/

I think this is generic and will work as I have a subdomain of the main site and I used, ... /view,xml/

This was accepted by Google as well so now I have 8 sitemaps with Google - 4 for the main site and 4 for the subdomains in each language.

So thanks for getting me interested enough to sort the problem out!

The question is what will happen with the sitemap that Google reads (from webmaster tools)?
Will Google read both languages ?
