I'm using the MS Calendar 7.0 (MSCAL.OCX) in a access 2000 form,
and the date format used by the calendar is in the wrong language on some computer
sometime is in french and others in english, i checked and It don't seem to have anything related  with regional settings.

Windows is in french (Windows XP), regional setting in french, Access 2000 in french.

In the control panel, regional settings, even though you may have french selected, you can still customize numbers, currency, time and date by selecting Customize. Insure all users have the same settings in these four blocks.

The problem is where the MS Calendar 9.0 (it was 9.0 not 7) found his language settings, I have a client who was in french for 3 weeks and on this monday he turned english. others compaint about this too, but i'm unable to reproduce this problems on my dev PC.

One thing in see is that the object class is 'MSCAL.Calendrier.7' and OLE App is 'Calendrier'
These name where created when drawing the calendar on the form.

my control seem to be in french too MSCAL.OCX I will look on the clients computer to see if it's the same.

Because you have French Access, I believe the words and syntax will be for the french application, regardless of whether English or French is selected in Regional Settings. You cannot run a french App on an English Access and expect the same results as a french app on a french Access - whether or not the regional settings for Windows are the same. To get the same results, I believe both the operating system and Access have to be the same in all user machines.

Because Microsoft Calendar is an ActiveX control, is has the file extension ".ocx". It's just a hunch but maybe an English version of MSCAL.OCX has been put into the directory C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office. Find that file on the troublesome machine, rename it to MSCALXX.OCX, and insert a copy of a working French calendar in its place. Reboot the system and see if the calendar on the troublesome machine is now in French. Good Luck!
