Hi Support Team,

Activating String Translation, I get this error message:

"There is a problem with the String Translation table in your site. This problem is not causing a problem running the site right now, but can become a critical issue in the future. WPML support team knows how to fix it. Please add a message in the relevant support thread and we'll fix it for you."

So here I am, sending the help message 🙂

if possible i would need to take a closer look at your WPML database tables to verify that they are currently not missing any fields and if everything checks out to remove the warning manually or patch the WPML database tables.

**Before we proceed I recommend to please take FULL BACKUP of your database and your website.**
I often use the Duplicator plugin for this purpose See:

I would like to request temporary access (wp-admin and FTP) to your site to fix the issue.
