Since we are using WPML our website takes 6 seconds to load instead of 2. How can we speed up? We are already using wprocket with CDN stackpath.

We have 3 WPML plugins, are they all 3 necessary?

1. WPML Translation Management
2. WPML Multilingual CMS
3. WPML String Translation

Looking at your site I'd say they are all necessary because only WPML core can't translate page builders or custom fields. You can look here:
If one of the features you need is not available for the multilingual Blog, then you need both String Translation and Translation Management.

Please look at our documentation about performance issues and see if you can try the suggestion in there:

If this doesn't help, I would also need your WPML debug information. You can find it in:
WPML -> Support -> click on debug information link
Then you can copy/paste the text you see in the Debug box I'll enable for the next answer.
