Issue :
search  in ACPs configuration tab is "hardcoded" to always use english language, independently from language chosed by administrator. Therefore search does not find anything when administrator use different language than english.

Steps to reproduce :
1. Goto ACP
2. Change ACP language to anything but english.
3. Click "configuration" tab at top of page or go to admin/index.php?module=config-settings
4. Insert non english word in search textbox and click search.
5. Obviously nothing will be found.

Details :
admin\modules\config\settings.php at line 1147 perform search by query on DB data which is in english.
It should rather create an array of translated data and search this instead. (or similar ideas)
I can confirm this as well.
