À plus tard / À tout à l'heure

    English - USA
    à tout à l'heure is for situations when you know you will see the person again in a few hours' time. maybe even in a few minutes (eg. you're running out to do some errands and will be back in half an hour)
    à plus tard is more generally "see you later"

    and if you speak with French speakers you can even say "à plus" (see you) meaning "à plus tard" (see you later )
