This thread is resolved. Here is a description of the problem and solution.
Problem: when trying to enable and save the option "Assume that the original language of all strings is English" in WPML -> Theme and plugin localization, I get the message: "Error: data not saved"
Solution: in the backend there are 2 notices about this option. After closing them, it's possible to save the option.
