I'm basically trying to figure out how to use keyboard-translate in Emacs to make M-- do the same thing as M-/

How do I go about doing this?

(define-key key-translation-map (kbd "M--") (kbd "M-/"))

If you use the kbd macro, you can use the string representation of the desired key sequence from the C-h k help text.
