I want to disable the complete WPML on our blog.
Since the Programmer left us, we need help uninstall and avoid ranking issues.

Please call me to do all steps togather.

Hello there,

Thank you for contacting WPML support. I'd be happy to assist you further on this issue.

I am sorry to let you know that we don't have introduced call support yet, so all my feedbacks and replies will be posted on the forum itself.

I am not totally sure if you just wanted to deactivate WPML, remove it or remove it with contents too, so I have listed all the steps for disabling, removing and removing it with content, could you please use the correct one for your need.

Disable WPML
To disable WPML for a short period of time, you can just deactivate the plugin from Dashboard -> Plugins

Remove WPML
To remove WPML, Go to WPML->Support->Troubleshooting (the link is at the bottom of the support page). There, click on “Reset all language data and deactivate WPML”.

Remove WPML along with it's contents
1) Backup your site
2) Go to pages/posts/media and change the language from the admin-bar selection
3) Select all posts/pages from languages you don't want and send it to trash.
4) Deactivate WPML.

I hope this helps.
