I installed the WPML plugin before but I decided to install it after I finished the website in 1 language. Now I installed the WPML plugin again, and the settings of the older version of the website are still set for WPML. Meaning that I have to re-do the styling for a lot of languages, again.. Can somebody please tell me how to reset the WPML settings, so that I can install it as a fresh (empty) plugin again.

Dear Jerremy,

It's because WPML saved settings in your database ,if you have no translation yet. Try go to WPML > Support > troubleshooting > Reset PRO translation configuration, select check-box "I am about to reset the ICanLocalize project setting." and click to the button "Reset all languages data and deactivate WPML".

Please let me know if you are satisfied with my answer and if I can help you with any other questions you might have.

When I do what you described, the settings of the plugin still remain. I just want to empty all the WPML database tables, so I can install it as a new plugin. The settings I had before, need to be reset.

Or can I just remove all the WP_ICL tables from my database?

I eventually found the solution, by using the plugin in English.
