Hi and thank you for contacting WPML Support!

I will be happy to help you with this.

It is safe to just dismiss that notice as it could be a one-time event due to updates and all should be fine with WPML after you close that notice. We had a similar issue before but it was handled already in the current version.

In the case where you can’t dismiss this notice, you can solve it by removing the empty value from your database table "wp_icl_strings" using database tools like PHPMyAdmin (or similar) or you can simply remove the entry from inside WPML > String Translation.

❌ Before doing that please backup your database and website for safety. ❌

What is practically happening is that the system is trying to insert a value when one already exists in another language tag.

Please let me know if this solved your issue or if you still need help.

Kind regards,
Mihai
