Add Product Name Synonyms

Users with access to product creation and editing can translate product names for different locales.

For example, if a product is created in French as a default language, users can add an English synonym or translation for the product. Users who use OpenBoxes in the English locale will see the English translation in every page of OB instead of the Default name in French.
