If you requested a video call through the form you will be notified from our support manager about setting up a date/hour for the call.

Sounds great but unfortunately I haven't received anything yet.

I contacted our support manager and he said they have received your request but it's behind a few other requests. He asked if there's a testing server where they can replicate the issue before having the call?

I will enable the private fields below so you can provide WP and FTP access.

Thanks. I downloaded a clone of your database from the live site. This database is only 6+MB then I added Turkish with not much difference in the database size. Added a couple of more languages and still didn't have much difference.
Here's the screencast: hidden link

Here you go. It's happened again. I will will need to restore a backup of the page.

Are you following the same procedure that I show in the screencast or am I doing something different?

Thanks for the information. I tested your procedure on my server, duplicated several pages to all the languages I activated in my screencast. Again, the database didn't increase significantly.
I created a test server where all the plugins have been installed.

Configure WPML first. Then install and activate your plugin. Activate the WP-Optimize plugin so you can check the initial DB size in WP-Optimize -> Table Information (at the bottom of the page)

Create a few pages, translate them, check the DB size.

Feel free to add/remove plugins as needed. Let me know what you find out.

I haven't had time to take care of it yet. I will probably join you later this week.
