plus tard

English translation of plus tard

later

The French word 'plus tard' directly translates to 'later' in English. It can be used in the same way we use 'later' in English, to refer to a point in time that happens after the present. For example, it can be used when you are talking about going to a place or doing an action 'later'. Keep in mind that in some contexts, French speakers might also use the word 'après' to mean 'later', but 'plus tard' is a more direct translation.
