The XSD file format is part of the Extensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL). XSD files are XBRL taxonomies, which are dictionaries used by the language, according to xbrl.org. The Extensible Stylesheet Language Transformations (XSLT) is a programming language in the Extended Markup Language (XML) family, according to msdn.microsoft.com. To create an XSLT from XSD, you can use Atova's XMLSpy, Editix Lite or XML Copy Editor.
