Date format per email?


I can see that it is possible to specify a date format portal-wide, but is it not possible to put a date from a property into a transactional email using a date format that is not the same as the portal-wide format? We have some mails in German where dates should not look the same as they do for our US mails.

And, can you insert the mail with a ‘long format’ like “December 22, 2017” rather than “12/22/17”?

(I am being asked to send formatted date strings as properties to the transactional email API by our Marketing peopel, and I can’t believe that’s what is needed…)
