I got the following 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."

Please, check my site what might cause the error.

We also get this error:
"WPML is missing some records in the languages tables and it cannot fully work until this issue is fixed.
Please go to the Troubleshooting page and click on "Clear language information and repopulate languages" to fix this problem.
This warning will disappear once this issue is fixed."

We already did the instructions before, then it seemed to work, but now it shows the same error, and this button doesn't show anymore in Troublshooting.
I think it might be something about Multisite and WPML conflict (we have a multisite with .com, .ch and domains, first two having WPML installed and set up on them. On .com site it is working fine, now we tried to set it up on .ch site, and here we get these errors.

Please, let me know if you need any access to the site.

Could you please let me have access to your site so I can try and fix this issue?
I'm going to need also FTP access because I'll need to install the Adminer (hidden link) script to manage the DB of your site.
Please allow me to do that as well. And please take a full backup of your site and DB before sharing with me all the details.

**** Important! Please make a full site backup (files and DB) before you proceed with those steps****

If you need further help with this, please share the access details to your site with me.

I'd like to handle your ticket from now on. I tried to access your site to do some tests, but the credentials you provided do not give me access to the dashboard. I see you have a multisite so I would need a network admin account in order to check.

I'd also like to ask you if I have the permission to eventually install some plugins to check the database if needed (I won't make any changes before checking with you first).

Please try again with this pw:
Super admin rights added.
Can't find how to make this private.

I accessed your site but I can't see the message about String Translation error. It's solved or am I missing something?

Very strange. Seems to have disappeared and it is working fine now.

My issue is resolved now. Thank you!
