This will display the key name next to elements of the user interface that can be translated, making it easier to translate in context. You'll see a lightning bolt icon between each UI label and its key name, as shown in the following example:
You can then search for the key on http://translations.atlassian.com, where you can enter an appropriate translation for your custom language pack.
