After block creation and put HTML content in body field I can't translate this content because of:

The string blocks:block:1:body for textgroup blocks is not allowed for translation because of its text format.

If I change to plain text I can translate block but it is treated as plain text while displaying. Do I have to create another block with the same HTML content (translated) and select to display only in specific language?

Found it, http://drupal.org/node/1298440#comment-5127390

In case anyone else has trouble finding this setting, it's at Configuration > Regional & Language > Multilingual Settings > Strings
