Managed Metadata field values are not displayed

Problem:

The values for a Managed Metadata field values are visible only for Site Collection Administrators.
In edit mode the current and possible values for the Managed Metadata field are visible and accessible.

Solution: 

The NT AUTHORITY\Authenticated Users does not have Read permission in the TaxonomyHiddenList.

Check the permissions in <site url>/Lists/TaxonomyHiddenList/AllItems.aspx.
The following permissions should be present:
NT AUTHORITY\Authenticated Users (NT AUTHORITY\authenticated users)  with Read permission
System Account (SHAREPOINT\system)  with Full Control permission
