Hello, welcome to the WPML support Forum!

I noticed that you are using WPML String Translation version 2.10.6. Could you please test with the BETA version? You can download from here: https://wpml.org/account/downloads/ (select the beta channel on right top). I think it should fix the issue.

IMPORTANT: Please backup your site first before making any change, this is important for security reasons.

Please let me know if it worked for you.

All the best,
Diego

Hi there,

The issue with the growing _icl_string_pages is a know issue that we already solved for our next release. You can check more details on these links:
- https://wpml.org/errata/big-icl_string_pages-table-wpml-3-5-0-causes-performance-issues/ (errata)
- https://wpml.org/pt-br/2019/08/wpml-4-3-beta-1-with-much-faster-string-translation/

Unfortunately the only way to fix this once for all is by installing beta or waiting for the official release.

Kind regards,
Diego
