Madanm Mandaly, Is the Kreyol word "kontan" besides being "happy" and "pleased"; can it be also translated "content"? Such as in "Mwen kontan fe konesans ou mesye". Mesi.

Yes, definitely.
kontan happy, cheerful, pleased, festive, satisfied ...

some people say:
1. Mwen kontan ak ou.
    I am proud /satisfied of your progress.

2.  Eske ou kontan ak travay mwen fè pou ou nan garaj la.
     Are you happy with /satisfied with the work that I did for you in the garage.

also the noun kontantman
3. Mezanmi! Ban m yon ti kontantman non!  Lave pwòp asyèt nou pou mpa bezwen fè l.
    Give me a little satisfaction! Wash your own dishes so that I won't have to do it.
