Catalan/Valencian are spoken in Catalunya, Valencia, the Balearic Islands, and supposedly in "L'Alguer" (EDIT: i'm not sure what it's called in English, i keep wanting to say "Algiers", but it's not Algiers, it's a town in Sardinia).

Basque/Euskara is spoken in the Basque Country, a region in the Pyrenees mountains that straddles the Spanish/French border.

Ah, I see. It's the Spanish version of Indonesian's "Sedikit demi sedikit, lama-lama menjadi bukit" (bit by bit, eventually it will become a hill).

In addition to "¡ánimo!" I would add:
¡no te rindas!
¡tu puedes!
¡adelante!

I wouldn't personally say "mantén el espíritu", it sounds like a direct translation from the English phrase and it lacks "motivational power" in my opinion.

Can you tell me what are their literal translations in English?

I guess it's something like "cheer up", "Don't give up", "you can (do it)" and "keep going". Literally: energy/spirit, don't give up/surrender, you can, forward.

¡no te rindas! means "energy"?

I guess I should order them like this:
ánimo: cheer up
no te rindas: Don't give up
tu puedes: you can (do it)
adelante: keep going

and literally:

ánimo: energy/spirit/mood
no te rindas: don't give up/surrender
tu puedes: you can
adelante: forward
