Incorrect English?

I know Kwiziq teaches French and not English, but the English sentence “ He's going after I did it” in the lesson doesn’t seem grammatically correct to me. Any English language grammarians here?

Bonjour Sara, thanks for bringing this up - it's fixed.

You are correct, Sara. The two English sentences "He's going after I've done it," and "He's going after I did it" are incorrect. Correct would be "He went after I did it". I guess they are meant as literal translations of the French, but that doesn't work in English. It is confusing.
