Hello, thank you for contacting WPML Support!

It is a known issue but it may also be a false positive.

To verify it, you should check in your database if you have the table "icl_strings" - e.g. "wp_icl_strings" (if your WordPress prefix is "wp_") and if you don't have that table - then you can follow the guide to re-create the missing tables.
Once the tables are re-created, you can then remove the key "wpml_string_table_ok_for_mo_import" from the option table (by default wp_options, where "wp_" is your database prefix).

If after following the above steps, the notice keeps appearing, then post a request on the last page of this thread and wait for instructions:
