Hi,

Thank you for contacting WPML support!

You are referring to wp_icl_strings table, correct, or some other table, maybe wp_icl_string_pages?

Can you have a look at this answer and let me know if you have any questions:

On a side note, this table having over 200MB could indicate that it may have hundreds of thousands of strings inside, thus possibly indicating corrupted database, because for example my testing localhost website has 20,025 strings and mere 8.5 MB.

Regards,
Bruno Kos
