Here are some links to some websites that have British English-American English translations. Some even have explanations of phrases and spelling differences.

Lonely Planet makes a nice little pocket guide called "British Language and Culture" that has a nice little dictionary in it as well as explanations of customs and foods.   We have a great time reading it to each other and laughing and because it's cheap, it was fun to get copies for my family, too.
