Replace instances of "Stream" with "Collection"
Open, LowPublic

Description

Task

Some publishers in the library have distinct collections of content that users can apply for. In the Library Card platform we sometimes refer to these as 'streams' and sometimes as 'collections'. This is confusing both for users and for folks translating the tool.

We should update strings (but not variable names for now, for simplicity) anywhere we've used the word 'stream' to instead say 'collection'. These strings might be in python code or in templates.

Good first task
