Have you got any more information that you can share about what your
source XML looks like and what you're trying to produce with it?

In order to use a single XSLT stylesheet on a particular set of source
XML files, they need to have something in common.  Perhaps they share
the same XML vocabulary - the same element and attribute names - with
only the text and attribute values being the particular language?
Perhaps they don't even share that, and the element and attribute
names are in different languages, but the structures are the same?
Perhaps even the structures are different in different languages?

There's also what you're aiming for.  Do you want the user to
dynamically select the language that they want to see the information
in, or are you just aiming for reuse by having the same stylesheet?
Should the output be restructured if different languages are used, or
is just a matter of changing the content, with the structure and style
remaining the same?

Just a bit more information will help focus a response.
