Hi there,

I will help you with your issue.

These errors happen when the activation of WPML is not complete. We are not yet sure how this issue is exactly replicated.

You can use the following workaround and continue to work with WPML.

1) Make a full backup of your site (files and database). There are many free plugins on for this purpose.

2)Add this code to the bottom of the functions.php file in your theme’s root folder.

function wpml_fix_missing_icl_tables() {
    if( function_exists( 'icl_sitepress_activate' ) )
add_action( 'wp_footer', 'wpml_fix_missing_icl_tables' );

3) Visit your site’s homepage at least one time.

4) Remove the code.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Kind regards
