"That shall enough go"? :-) I think I'm missing something here...

    "nok" can also mean "probably"/"very likely".

    How about "it'll work out" / "it will work out"?

    Yeah, sure. That sounds good. :)

    Hvordan skriver man "It will probably leave." på dansk?

    The closest to the original sentence would be "Den/det vil nok gå væk" - "It will probably/hopefully go away."

    Alright is not a word. It should be all right.

    It definitely is a word. Though widely disregarded for whatever reason. I like it much.

    Not sure which of the many varieties of English you speak, but 'alright' is alive and well here in Australia, as can be seen in The Macquarie Dictionary entry. In fact, I'd say it's usurped 'all right' in many domains.

      Can this also be translated as something like 'that'll do'?

      Maybe? I wouldn't say so. "Det skal nok gå" is something you say to reassure yourself or someone else that something will work out or function properly. It might be dangerous or prone to failure, but we have confidence.
