Is "We'll talk it later" as correct as "We'll talk about it later"? It sounds correct to me because in Spanish I can say "Lo hablaremos luego" or in Italian "Ne parleremo dopo". And what about "We'll talk it over later"?

If you don't want to say "about," you can use "discuss" instead of "talk" discuss X=talk about X We discussed dogs=we talked about dogs We'll discuss it later=We'll talk about it later OR, you could erase "it" "We'll talk later" is a fine sentence

I think: Hablaremos luego = We'll talk later Lo hablaremos luego = We'll talk about it later. It's a simple thing: In Spanish, 'hablar' can have a direct object (lo) but 'talk' in English can't. eg: let's talk. talk TO me. talk ABOUT something, etc. Your second question: 'talk something over' is a different meaning, like discuss the good things (pros) and bad things (cons) and make a decision together. :)

"We'll talk it later" is incorrect.
