I think that you're misunderstanding how the translate() function works. [...snip...] So the translate() function can be used to translate words from lowercase to uppercase, as long as it's a character-by-character conversion that you're interested in (e.g. you don't want 'ß' to become 'SS').

The XSLT Standard Library provides a general solution that handles international case-conversion, like the 'ß' to 'SS' case described by Jeni. See http://xsltsl.sf.net/
