Thank you for contacting WPML Support. In this case you can just proceed clicking the blue 'Start' button to let WPML runs the process of checking the existing media on your site. Once it completed the language information will be set to the existed media and the images will be duplicated to the translated pages (if you have them).


Please, let me know if you need any other clarifications, have a nice day.

Hi Marcos, I did that but every time I go to the dashboard it still shows me the same message about WPML needing to set the media language.
