Thank you for contacting WPML!

First of all, please make sure your server meets all the requirements for running WPML:

Then, try to activate the plugin again. If it still doesn't work, switch to a default theme temporarily, disable all non-WPML plugins and see if you can get activated.

Let me know how this goes!

Did you switch to a default theme and activated String Translation? Did that work?

I tried to login with the details you provided but those no longer seem to be working. I would login details to take a look at your site and permission to enable/disable themes, plugins. Please let me know if that's okay or not.
