You can now specify a custom date/time format in your blog translation document. This is useful if your blog server is based in a location where the regional setting are different from your home location ( Example : Server based in USA but home location is Ireland. ).

As the Date/Time format is part of the translation document you also have the ability to show the correct date/time format to your visitor based on their web browsers regional settings. So if you have a German translation document you can set the custom date format to DD.MM.YY so visitors from germany will see a date format that they are used to while visitors from the USA will see MM/DD/YYYY.
