UX Improvements in field filters with autocomplete

Hi, I’m using Metabase v0.28.5 and created a field filter for a column called “gender” in my database. The name of this filter that I display to my end user (its alias) is “Gênero” (which is the translation to pt-br, my language). But when Metabase generates the field filter with autocomplete it displays a message to the user using the original column name, and not the alias I created previously.

The image below illustrates my point.

Field Filter Gender - Autocomplete

So, my suggestion is: the placeholder message should use the alias and not the column name. Otherwise it would be really confusing to the end user, specially when using Metabase in non-English countries.
