Can this be used as 'it is too late' like in english?

"It is too late" would be "Det er for sent", which is more common to say, and "Det er ikke for tidligt" would only be used as the answer to a question such as "Er det for tidligt?" (Is it too early?) So it can't really be used as meaning "It is too late" Also, like in English "Not a moment too soon" the Danish translation "Ikke et øjeblik for tidligt!" contains the same hint of sarcasm.

I taped the correct words here in the word bank, and it was marked wrong with the English translation given. Something needs to be corrected.
