"The last time I saw her, she was just a little kid."

Do you have a translation question?

"The last time I saw her, she was just a little kid."

This is strange but I've never heard of the construction "The last time I ...." in Japanese.

Is there a direct and meaningful translation of "The last time I saw her, she was just a little kid" in Japanese? Or is the Japanese version just equivalent, but not literally the same? Thanks!

I think something like

この前会ったとき or 最後に会ったとき would fit well, depending on the situation.

So your sentence could loosely translated be something like:

最後に会ったとき、彼女はまだ子供だった。
失敗は成功の元
