I am on Mac OS X and when I used Bash (the default shell) before, to change tabs in the terminal I used Cmd or Cmd. Now I switched to to zsh and I have to do Cmd} or Cmd{.

How do I change these bindings?

I found out it happened because I change the language used on my computer from French to English but I don't know how to change the binding!

You can find the default shortcuts under Window » Select Next Tab or Select Previous Tab. These have nothing to do with Bash or zsh – the shortcuts work for the terminal emulator, in your case

To change them, go to System Preferences » Keyboard » Keyboard Shortcuts. Here, add a new application shortcut:

Repeat the same for Select Previous Tab and the defaults will be overridden:
