you can't use $parameters in XPath expressions like that. $txtNode contains
a string - would you expect to be able to do 
	"$resource/'AddressTitle'/'EN'?

You can use a predicate though:
	select="$resource/*[local-name()=$txtNode]/*[local-name()=$txtLang]"

It's bad xml to encode information in the name of elements. Instead of 
<Resource>
	<AddressTitle>
		<EN>Customer: </EN>
		<NL>Klant: </NL>
		<FR>Client: </FR>
	</AddressTitle>
</Resource>

why not make the type of resource (Address Title, EN / NL / FR) into an
attribute?
