The only way for the options page add-on to play nicely with WPML is to create a translation of the field group for each translation.
Each options page field group will need a prefix for the field names. This prefix is the WPML language code (en_, fr_)
A field group for english may have a field called en_twitter, en_headline, etc..
Then, in your template file, you can find the current language code (WPML uses a constant for this, not sure exactly what it is off the top of my head).
Use this language code to generate the field name: eg:
get_field( LANG_CODE . '_twitter', 'options');
I hope that helps.
Your other option is to use a custom post type called options. That way you can use WPML as normal. But instead of using ‘options’ as the second param of get_field, you will need to find the post ID of the optiosn post type object
