On 12.1.3 version

Upon sending a notification to the supplier via email, the Operating Unit name originally saved in the French language is not translated to English.  This occurs despite the Supplier's language being in English. All other words in the notification are translated properly to English.

Due to this issue the user may not be able to fully understand the Operating Unit in the notification, since it has not been translated.
