Hi,

 

Firstly, the video has to support subtitles (caption). Sadly, not all the videos do. However, for this example, we'll use one that I found that does allow you to turn on CC (closed caption). I am located in the USA so I am not sure if this affects the availability of subtitles/closed caption.

OK! Go that video above (Fan Interference in Sports Compilation). 

 

  • At the bottom of the video screen, you should see the play button, skip, etc. To the right of those, you should see CC. It's next to the cog/gear icon for settings.
  • Click CC.
  • A red line appears under the letters. This means that CC is set to on.
  • You should now see subtitles appear while watching the video.
  • To choose which language the caption appears in, click the settings icon.
  • Then, click subtitles/cc.
  • Then select auto-translate.
  • Lastly, choose your preferred language.

Please note, however, that these are auto translations and the accuracy of the translations are not guaranteed. Best of luck!

Perhaps I have mistakenly gave you the wrong question.  Its not subtitles i am referring to.  I am referring to words like "Cancel", "next" etc.  These words are being displayed in a middle eastern tongue.
