[Dash] See more/less sounds wrong

Bug Description

Collapsed/Expandable scopes show a label "See more" and expanded scopes accordingly "See less". This sounds weird and should rather be "Show more" and "Show less". The user is instructing the phone to show more entries, it's not that the phone sees them.

I only really noticed with the german translation "Mehr sehen" which seems really uncommon in user interfaces, but after consulting with a native english speaker we seem to agree that the issue is the actual string, not the translation.

------ UX Comment -------

Desired solution: change the text from 'See more/See less' to 'More/Less. Consistent with the use of this pattern in the Browser app.
