    my means is in localizable file we have two fields
    one is key and second is comment
    so before installing of my application in phone if I will change in localizable file on comment side for security point of view.
    So my application will take new comment value or older one (that is used at the of build) using NSLocalizable string function.

    You application will use the value (not comment, that goes between /* */) that exists in the file installed. This is looked up at runtime of the application.
