please run the script shown in the following errata as it will restore your icl_strings db tables.

-> https://wpml.org/errata/missing-_icl_strings-_icl_string_translations-data-tables/

once that is done please review the icl_strings table and let me know if you can see the strings within it.

if yes then "x" out the notice and refresh your page.

let me know your results please

I ran the script and checked the DB, still had to repair the table through PHPMyAdmin. I guess by strings you mean the value field? If so yes it seems readable (the few pages I looked at). However I still have the error message in WordPress back office. What should I do?

The notice remained even after you "x" it out ?

if yes i would like to take a closer look

**Before we proceed I recommend to please take FULL BACKUP of your database and your website.**
I often use the Duplicator plugin for this purpose See: http://wordpress.org/plugins/duplicator/

I would like to request temporary access (wp-admin and FTP) to your site
