Authentication modules localised names are not shown to the user at selection time

      The authentication modules used to be translated but by accident (see OPENAM-5744).

      How to reproduce the issue:

      • Create an Active Directory module called AD,
      • set its auth level to 2
      • modify the LDAP module and change its auth level to 2

      Try to login to "openam/UI/Login?authlevel=2"
      You will have the following possible choices:

      • AD
      • LDAP

      (by default, AD is translated by Active Directory)

      The thing to take care here is that two modules with the same translation should not be merged. Ex:

      • a module called AD translated to Active Directory
      • a module called Active Directory but not translated

      In the interface, we should have:

      • Active Directory
      • Active Directory
      • LDAP

      and not

      • Active Directory
      • LDAP

      The fact that two modules could be translated the same way is a configuration issue, and the admin should take care that two modules are not translated to the same word.
      If the modules names are merged, the admin won't notice that there is a conflict in the module names translation.
