    Re: translation

    I ain't bitin' = I am not [ain't] biting [bitin']
    you gettin' = you (are) getting

    Both are dialectical informal usages.

    A { ' } at the end of a participle indicates a missing "g".
    lookin' = looking
    readin' = reading

    It would help to have the full sentence in which you meet these. "You gettin'" could also be "Are you getting?".
