I think it would be better to show these phrases without a period; then it would be clear that they are not complete sentences.

So, if I understand this correctly, this dependent clause will translate as either "after she goes" or "after she went" depending upon the independent clause it goes with in the sentence...

Is this a complete sentence in Welsh? Or should it translate to, "After(wards), she went." ?

Prepositions change with the person in Welsh. "i" stays as "i" for "Fi", "Ti", "Chi" and "Ni" . It becomes "iddo fo", "iddi hi", and "iddyn nhw".

Why is there sometimes an i and sometimes not, e.g. ar ol dechrau gweithio (sorry cannot do the circumflex on a tablet). Why not ar ol i dechrau gweithio?

"Ar ôl dechrau" is "After starting", you add an "i" when you have a person. "Ar ôl i mi ddechrau", "Ar ôl i Gareth ddechrau". "After I start/started", "After Gareth starts/started."
