Website with problems: hidden link

I got 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."

I posted it in relevant support thread ( as asked in error message.

I received answer from George Botsev:
"@stevenV-3 thank you for your database dump.
You are having a slightly different issue -> you are missing your icl_strings and other related tables that are required for WPML String Translation to work properly. Thus we have nothing to patch.
Please open a new ticket in our forum - because this is a different issue and requires intervention by our support engineers on your server - they must make the tables to be created."

Thanks in advance for further support!

Hi, to correct this issue I will need to access your server and force the creation of these tables. Would it be possible for you to provide us with temporary FTP and wp-admin credentials?

I'll set your next response to private.

Hi, I've managed to re-create the missing tables and the notice is not showing up on your site anymore. Let me know if there is anything out of place.
