But since there usually over 10 strings that have to be translated on

Well the processor is supposed to cache that result anyway.

Is there a way to copy the value of document('')/*/trans:tr to a
variable and then access that variable 10 times?
Can a variable hold the node set?
Would this make sense?

Sure: <xsl:variable name="trs" select="document('')/*/trans:tr"/>

If yes, then how can I change this template? By the way, this template
is not completely finished yet, I still have to put
a real test condition instead of testing for true()

<xsl:template name="translateString"> <xsl:param name="str"/> <xsl:param name="toLang"/> <xsl:param name="fallback" select="'en'"/> <xsl:choose> <xsl:when test="true()"> <!-- <xsl:value-of select="$fallback"/> --> <xsl:value-of select="document('')/*/trans:tr/tr_string[@str=$str]/*[name()=$toLang]"/>

<xsl:value-of select="$trs/tr_string[@str=$str]/*[name()=$toLang]"/>
