Hi all

Does anyone know of an Abyssal (as opposed to Infernal) translator or dictionary they can point me to?

Since the Abyss has countless layers and inhabited by Chaotic and very uncooperative creatures, Abyssal inevitably spawns lots of dialects, that constantly diverge (and borrow from each other and everywhere else).
Which is why the locals tend to be misunderstood often. This only adds to their habitually foul attitude, of course.
IIRC this was in Faces of Evil.

You might find more specific lexicons searching for the 2E Planescape-era names for these languages: baatezu, tanar'ri, and yugoloth.
