When WPML was enabled, the website became dramatically slow, the pages are loading now for 50-60 seconds. Before enabling WPML it was very quick as 1-2 seconds for loading.

We have tried all the recommendations from the website and we use only the last updates for all plugins and WP.
I do not have images at website or anything that takes so long time to load the pages.

my domain is hidden link

Dear Oleksandr,

This FAQ entry might be relevant for you:

You should also enable a plugin called 'Debug Queries' and show us the DB queries that his site is generating, with and without WPML's String Translation.

We sent debug queries with and without WPML to your e-mail (subject: debug queries). I am looking forward to your help.

Hi Oleksandr,

Are you sure you have disabled 'track where strings appear on the site' ? (according to

It doesn't look like from your queries list.

Dear Mihai,

I did it many times but the settings are returning. I mean that I saved settings (disabled 'track where strings appear on the site') but 'a tick' in a box is returning.

(I saved and it worked approximately for 10 seconds and when I refresh a page it returned to the previous settings.)

Thank you for helping me to solve this issue.

Dear Mihai

Please ignore previous message. I disabled it but still the debug query shows that website has 620 queries. Can you give your e-mail please I will send you debug queries list?

Sorry for the delay on this Oleksandr. You can email me at of you're still having this issue.

I got your email, thank you.
Can you confirm what WPML version are you using now (including the addons) ?

Also - from your email I see that the "Total query time: 0.80739s for 384 queries."
0.80 seconds is a reasonable time and only some of the queries are being made by WPML.

Were you able to break down the difference of performance between using and not using WPML?
