The English translation given for this Welsh idiom is poor. It should be:

  • Mae'n hen bryd iddyn nhw dalu - It is high time (or about time) that they paid

  • Mae'n hen bryd iddo fe dalu ei fil - It is about time that he paid his bill

  • Mae'n hen bryd i Siân ddechrau dysgu Cymraeg - It is high time that Siân started learning Welsh
