    Primeramente, ¿esta jerga se escribe "¡SAN SE ACABÓ!" o "¡SANSEACABÓ!"? Y para decir en inglés me parece que sería algo como "End of deal!" ¿verdad?

    Spanish-Spain. Gallego-Galicia (Spain)
    " ¡(Y) sanseacabó!"

    It's an old-fashioned expression used when you want to put and end to an argument. Anyway, most people understand it (maybe not young people)

    Hope it helps !

    I think "period!" is more idiomatic (i.e. I said you're not allowed to go! Period! / ¡He dicho que no vas, y punto/y sanseacabó!).
