Others gave the direct way to translate dates. You can also use the XSLT Standard Library

I use it to print events for a calendar. The input is iCalendar converted to XML.

  <param kind="TZID">CT(America/Chicago)</param>

The stylesheet parts are ... <xsl:call-template name="DATE"> <xsl:with-param name="this-date" select="DTSTART/value"/> </xsl:call-template> ... <xsl:template name="DATE"> <xsl:param name="this-date"/>

  <xsl:call-template name="dt:format-date-time">
    <xsl:with-param name="year" select='substring($this-date, 1, 4)' />
    <xsl:with-param name="month" select='substring($this-date, 5, 2)'/>
    <xsl:with-param name="day" select='substring($this-date, 7, 2)'/>
    <xsl:with-param name="hour" select='substring($this-date, 10, 2)'/>
    <xsl:with-param name="minute" select='substring($this-date, 12, 2)'/>
    <xsl:with-param name="second" select='substring($this-date, 14, 2)'/>
    <xsl:with-param name="time-zone"></xsl:with-param>
    <xsl:with-param name="format" select="'%Y-%m-%dT %H:%M:%S'" />

It's overkill if you just want to convert the date. Perhaps you want to format dates in several ways...

In my XML document, I have a date stored in ISO format:

How can I convert this in my XSL file to dd/mm/yyy format (with the dashes)?

I am currently using the command:
			<td><xsl:value-of select="LASTUPDATED"/></td>
