I noticed that when I active any plugin it automatically gets translated by WPML without my knowledge.

Happens because you need to do this as well:

But before this, go to WPML -> String translation -> Auto register strings for translation and remove the setting from all of these domains that you will not be translating.

Thanks Bruno.

Just to clarify.... are you suggesting I activate the other plugins and then in STRING TRANSLATION I delete those strings that are not necessary? Forgive my ignorance but I do not quite understand the screenshot you attached.

Thank you for your patience.

Unfortunately, after following your advice, activating string translation still causes my WP admin and site to crash.
