We are live now with hidden link but we can see that there is heavy load on our mySQL server because of WPML.

Can you help us with various solutions to address this issue

Thank you for contacting WPML support!

According to the image you provided, these are queries related to String Translation plugin. There is no "fix" for this - we cannot remove these queries while keeping the full string translation plugin functionality.

There are some things you can try:
- The most simplest would be to set this option:
-- WPML -> Theme and plugins localization -> How to translate strings in themes and plugins? -> Don't use String Translation to translate themes and plugins

In this case, no plugin or theme translations will come from String Translation, but only from their .po files (if available). I think that this topic may shed some more light on this:

Let me know if this is not working for you - otherwise we might need to clean string translation table on your site, but that is much more complex and time-consuming task.
