Improve Search for Latin America

The current approach to search for clients by their name has its limitations in countries where people have 3-4 last names and/or accents and other special characters in their name.

Search results should not differentiate between words with and without accents, e.g. "Rubén" with accent and "Ruben", as well as find clients with multiple last names such as "Enna Delfina Rigoberto Fernandes Sanchez" which are currently close to impossible to find by just entering their names.

One could implement fulltext search with substring matching and tolerance over a name field that joins all names together in a normalized form (without accents and special characters).
