Otro método para decir "okay"

Hola,
Estaba buscando una palabra en español para decir "okay" pero solo pudé encontrar "OK". ¿Hay otra manera de decirla?

Extract from the Oxford Spanish dictionary for the verb valer:

D vale (Españafamiliar)
1 (
expresando acuerdo) OK; ¿nos encontramos en la cafetería? — ¡valer! shall we meet in the cafeteria? sure o fine o OK!; paso a buscarte a las ocho, ¿valer? I'll pick you up at eight, OK o all right?; voy a llegar un poco más tarde — valer, no te preocupes I'll be a bit late — all right o OK, don't worry; que llegues tarde una vez valer, pero tres días seguidos … being late once is one thing, but three days in a row …
2 (
basta): ¿valer así o quieres más? is that OK o enough or do you want some more?; ¡valer, valer, que no me quiero emborrachar! hey, that's enough o plenty! I don't want to get drunk!; ya valer, ¿no? lleváis media hora discutiendo don't you think that's enough? you've been arguing for half an hour

Vale is mostly heard in Spain. A good international term is de acuerdo.

Interesante. Oxford especifica que 'valer' tiene este significado en España, ¿es possible de usarla en otros lugares? (Sí, Poli escribió su respuesta antes que refresqué la pentalla)

Coloquialmente, a algún mexicano le he oído: "Sale y vale". Pero "vale" es sobre todo ibérico...

Está bien.
De acuerdo.
Bien.
Bueno.
Órale. (Mex.)

Lo anterior son varias opciones... ¿de acuerdo?

Cuando estaba en México, alguien que conocí ahí me comentó que yo decía mucho "vale", y que estando en México debería decir en su vez "ándale".

Órale, tú lo has dicho...

¡Ándale, Bernardo, cántale ahorita la tuya! (Les Luthiers, Serenata Mariachi)

En España, aparte del "vale" también se usa el "venga". "Venga, vale".

@Pablo: 'orita
Por cierto, es curioso que hayas oído "sale y vale"... ya está prácticamente en desuso. ;(

@Pjt: Sí, "ándale", "órale", "ok", son lo más común aquí, aunque últimamente los jóvenes tienden a decir "vale", porque ven series españolas o porque tienen conocidos o familiares españoles.
