In your recent audio post you translated lefini as ‘afterwards’. Shouldn’t it be translated as ‘at the end’ instead?

“Lèfini” (sometimes you may see it as “lòfini”, it may also be written as two words “lè fini”) basically translates afterwards, after that, and then, then
1.
I am going to rest first and then I’ll take my shower. - M pral repoze anvan lèfini m’a pran beny mwen.
2.
Do your homework first, and then you can play. - Fè devwa w anvan, lèfini ou ka jwe.
3.
What you’re doing isn’t right. You spent all your paycheck in one day and then you want me to share my earnings with you. - Sa w fè a pa bon. Ou depanse tout chèk ou nan yon sèl jounen an lèfini ou vle pou m separe salè mwen avèk ou.
