It's not your fonts, it's your system locale. run
locale to get your current locale configuration.
You can use something like
LC_TIME=fr_FR ls -l to get France's format in date column as an example if it's available to use on your system.
You can also use
locale -a to get a list of available locales. edit
/etc/locale.gen file to enable your desired locales by removing
# from any line you want, then run
sudo locale-gen to generate them.
After all run:
sudo localectl set-locale LANG=en_US.utf8
to set English locale as your default or change
en_US.utf8 with your desired locale.
