Why won't it accept I want to tidy up later?

Why isn't "I want to tidy afterwards" acceptable...

The sentence appears to have changed.

Why won't it accept clean up for tidy


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ellenspeaking

cut us a bit of slack: allow "tidy" as well as "tidy up"


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ibisc

Both 'tidy' and 'tidy up' are in the database as acceptable answers.

why won't it accept later instead of afterwards?

'Later' is more usually nes ymlaen or hwyrach. Wedyn is usually used when saying that you will do something after doing something else first.

Although the University dictionary allows 'later' as a translation so I guess we should add it.

What about "straighten up"? American usage.

There are many variations in translation if many words between any two languages. Realistically, we can only handle some of the most common variations on a course such as this.

There are comprehensive dictionary and thesaurus resources available on-line or in print.

I feel a 'now after' moment coming on :) ... Just for those in the south!
