but the translation works even if the extendable word does not exist

The keyword means that there may be other translations between the same pair of addresses, using different ports. Without the keyword, only that entry would work, and no others between those addresses.

If I remember rightly, the keyword is inserted automatically if you specify the TCP and/or UDP port on the translation. Which means it isn't really optional - it is just information.
