As long as I don't use \printbibliography command, my document compiles without errors and warnings.

Once I try to print bibliography, I get following messages:

Undefined control sequence.<argument> \datecircaprint \mkbibdateapalongextra {labelyear}{labelmonth}{la... l.78 \end{frame}
Package biblatex Warning: Bibliography string 'retrieved' undefined at entry 'some-3' on input line 78.
Package biblatex Warning: Bibliography string 'from' undefined at entry 'some-3' on input line 78.

and strange strings in bibliography such as labelyearlabelmonthlabelday).:

strange characters in bibliography

According to: Problems with "retrieved from" in bibliography produced by BibLaTeX (APA style), I've tried to resolve it by adding:

\usepackage[polish]{babel}
    \DeclareLanguageMapping{polish}{polish-apa}

but it doesn't help.


My MWE is as follows:

\documentclass[10pt, compress, xcolor={usenames, dvipsnames}]{beamer}
\usepackage{appendixnumberbeamer}
\usepackage[export]{adjustbox}
\mode<presentation> {
    \usetheme{Warsaw}
    \setbeamertemplate{headline}{}
    \usepackage[backend=biber,style=apa,citestyle=authoryear, natbib=true]{biblatex}
    \DefineBibliographyStrings{english}{andothers={i inni},and={i}} %% Mentioned strings are in polish, not english.

Using

\usepackage[english]{babel}
\DeclareLanguageMapping{english}{english-apa}

Works when I run your example, i.e.,

\documentclass[10pt, compress, xcolor={usenames, dvipsnames}]{beamer}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage{appendixnumberbeamer}
\usepackage[export]{adjustbox}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{multirow}
\usepackage{csquotes}
\usepackage{polski}
\uselanguage{polish}
\languagepath{polish}

\mode<presentation> {
    \usetheme{Warsaw}
    \setbeamertemplate{headline}{}
    \usepackage[backend=biber,style=apa,citestyle=authoryear, natbib=true]{biblatex}
    \DeclareLanguageMapping{english}{english-apa}
    \DefineBibliographyStrings{polish}{andothers={i inni},and={i}} %% Mentioned strings are in polish, not english.

    That is because biblatex-apa has no polish-apa.lbx, so falls back to English, where we still need \DeclareLanguageMapping{english}{english-apa}. With biblatex 3.8/biblatex-apa 7.5 \DeclareLanguageMapping is not needed for biblatex-apa any more.
