  the oupt of the xquery i need is the following:-
  trans/item count is 2
  trans/item/elem/ count is 2

It's a lot easier to do this sort of thing in xslt, but in xquery I
suppose you'd do something like

 <trans id="1">
         <elem><elem> it </elem></elem>
  <trans id="2">
         <elem><elem> is </elem></elem>

for $n in distinct-values(//*/name())

$ saxon8q -s count.xml count.xq
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
count x 1
count trans 2
count item 2
count elem 4
