Currently the translation does not work for header/footer texts because the format is not brought to the translation.
This currently needs the patch from: http://drupal.org/node/1157366#comment-4468534
Better reference#1157366: Bring the format for area's to the translation methods
The patch is already in.
Thanks Dereine to help us with that.
