Authors Note: Remember that all content on VIKI is subtitled by volunteers. When subtitles for a video don’t appear or are incomplete, it usually means that the community has not finished subtitling yet. To check the subtitle completion percentage for a particular episode, you can visit the video you want to watch, then select your preferred subtitle language on the video player and it will show what percentage of that video has been subtitled. We highly recommend that you check all the episodes to make sure that they have been subtitled completely or you may have to wait to be able to finish the entire series until the subtitling is finished.
