It's always "also known as" to me. I'm more accustomed to seeing it with proper names. In a list, it would seem more common to use "see also."

In a table of terms and definitions that I inherited, alternate terms are explained as âaka<alternate-terms>â. Any thoughts on whether people will understand this?
