"Pay attention!"


Explanation:
앞뒤 상황을 잘 모르지만 만약 공식적인 발표 자료에서라면 Pay attention 이 가장 무난해 보입니다.
캐주얼한 상황의 대화라면 그냥 "Let me check here." 을 쓰셔도 되구요.
혹시 더 자세한 내용이 있다면 추가해주시는 것도 좋을 것 같습니다.

"Wait a second here!" or "Hold on a minute here!"


Explanation:
These are commonly used expressions.

Example sentence(s):
  • 그 것이 인생의 섭리라 할 수 있죠. 여기서 잠깐! 범인은 왜 그랬던 걸까요?
  • We can say that's the way of life. Hold on a second here! Why would the criminal behave that way?

Now look here, look here


Explanation:
원문이 없어서 정확한 의미는 헤아리기 어렵겠지만,
한국어에서 문맥상 여기서 잠깐!을 사용하는 경우는,
청중을 주목시킬 때인데요.
그러한 의미로 번역을 하자면
'이제 보십시오' 라는 의미로 'Now, look here' 으로 번역하면 어떨까 합니다.
Now, look here 또는 look here, 하면서 중요한 말을 이어갈 것입니다.

WAIT!


Explanation:
선택하실 수 있는 옵션이야 굉장히 많죠. 앞분들이 제시해주신 거 전부 완전 정석으로 맞는 문장이고, 캐주얼하게는:

"Wait!"
"Just a sec!"
"Hold on!"
"Sit tight!"
"Stay put!"

이런 것들 있을 것 같네요. 근데 이건 화자의 캐릭터나 소스의 분야에 따라 되게 다를 것 같은데요. 원어민 프루프 리딩이 꼭 필요할 듯한.
