> Right now, I think WPML store different version for each media for each language. For instance, if we have a post in English with 3 images, WPML create another 6 extra images for French and Dutch languages. Is it true?
If yes, how can we disable this feature?

Thank you for contacting WPML support.

1.- WPML Media Translation doesn’t duplicate any files on your site. Duplication here means that new entries are created in the database with your translated image captions, titles, meta text, and other information. You can read more about it in the following link:

2.- Please increase the PHP Memory Limit. Minimum requirements are 128Mb:
You can add this to wp-config.php to increase WP memory:

/** Memory Limit */
define('WP_MEMORY_LIMIT', '128M');
define( 'WP_MAX_MEMORY_LIMIT', '128M' );

- Add it above the line /* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */

Kind regards,
