In System Settings, searching for "Update" currently yields no results if the locale is set to German.
I would have expected the "Softwareaktualisierung" KCM (kcm_updates) to show up, because the English title "Software update" matches my search query. Currently, the kcm_updates.desktop file has no search keywords. (I changed that in https://invent.kde.org/plasma/discover/-/merge_requests/214.)
I think that search queries are also be matched against search keywords of the default locale, additional to the currently selected locale. (e.g. when I search for "screen", many KCMs are showing up in the results)
I suggest doing the same with the title (Name attribute in the desktop file).
