Up you go.
Down you go.
There you go.
Here you go.

I tried to translate the above words in Spanish but I'm not sure if the translation would be correct:
Up you go. = Ve te arriba.
Down you go. = Ve te abajo.
There you go. = Ve te alli.
Here you go. = Ve te aqui.

Please correct if these are wrong. Also the imperative mood of verb Ir and Ver are the same. How do you communicate that you meant to say the verb Ir and not Ver when using it in the imperative mood?

Thanks.

Also, "On you go" can be a note of encouragement a bit like "You're all set now.".

Thanks, Angelica. One more question, if you don't mind, what is the difference between "alli" and "allá"?

Again, thanks.

In México we tend to use more "allá"/"ahí", and I think "allí" is more specific about the place you're pointing out.

Correct. Same with "Off you go" or "there you are"
