Hello @Muriel,

Thank you for contacting WPML support.

Performance issues depend upon it's server, plugins used and furthermore, Multilingual plugins take more resources than other plugins as it needs to connect all plugins/themes strings and translate them accordingly. So, the fact is that if you have more plugins and themes (with a large number of strings) WPML will try to translate them which adds significant load and you will feel the performance issue, which is normal somehow.

In every update, we are trying to increase the performances of our plugins.

To test if your site is just having performance issue due to high load of strings or resources needed for the plugins I would request you to check the performance when:
1) All on-WPML Plugins are disabled.
2) The theme is set to a WordPress default like Twenty sixteen.

This test will let us know if it's just the plugins/themes resources that are making site performance high or it's something that's in our plugin itself.

Further, Here are a few things you can try to increase the site performance:
http://wpml.org/2012/01/can-your-site-run-faster/
http://wpml.org/faq/why-string-translation-appears-to-slow-down-sites/

Does this help?

I look forward to your reply.

Thanks

We are trying all solutions that have been given.
But it takes time, because we need to keep in mind that this is a live site.
My apologies if it takes so long.

This case can be closed. The homepage has been completely redesigned so it will ask for less resources from theme AND plug-ins.
