I want to customize the title label of my taxonomy, the name field. By default, its value is "Name".

I know I can use the mymodule_form_alter hook and do as followed:

$form['title']['widget'][0]['#title'] = t('My Custom Name'); 

But I want to do it in the UI and export the configurations like any other fields. Also, I want to be able to translate my custom name.

Use the Base Field Override UI, go to "Structures" > "Taxonomies" > "Manage fields" and go to the new "Base Field Override" tab. You can override the "Name" field here and translate it.
