change entity selector display (to solve confusion with matches in other languages)
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

The display of results in the entity selector needs to be changed. When searching for something that has a match in a different language then the match is displayed in a second line with "also known as". This is confusing because it is not the same "also known as" we use for aliases.
The whole thing should be changed to display the match instead in brackets behind the label. Example when searching for Wien with interface set to English:

Vienna (Wien)
capital of Austria
