    How would I say this in Spanish? I can translate literally but I don't know if there's any equivalent ...

    "Después del tres ... uno, dos ... TRES!"

    There have been a lot of comedy routines written on the difference between "on 3" vs "after 3." The way you have TRES emphasized, it looks like "on 3" to me.

    Isn't that the sort of thing said at auctions? Going once, going twice, SOLD.

    Depende el contexto pero me parece que una opción puede ser:

    ¡A la cuenta de tres... una... dos...y tres!
