SMTP is documented primarily in RFC 821 and 822. POP3 is documented in RFC
1939. You can find the RFCs at http://ds.internic.net/ds/dspg1intdoc.html,
among many other places.
Since POP3 and SMTP are completely different protocols that serve
completely different purposes, I don't see what sort of meaningful
"translation" you could perform between them.
