titles of respect

I'm looking for ways to say "yes, sir" and "no, sir" and things like that in various other languages. Essentially what I'm looking for is a title or form of address that functions similarly to "sir/ma'am" in English. I realize that in a lot of other languages that respect is demonstrated by the use of the formal "you" or verb forms, but what I'd ideally like is something that I could substitute for "sir" in an English sentence. (If the translation is more accurately "Master" or "My Lord" or "Boss" or something, that's fine)
