Could the universal translator translate Chewbacca's growls?
Depends. If the writer of the work in question wanted it to, then it could. If the writer didn't want it to, then it couldn't.

What do you think the translator is closer to decoding?

A) Calamarain language

B) Breen tongue

Whichever one the writer wants.

Seriously, these things are pretty much made up as they go along. They don't answer these questions until there's a need to answer them, so any answer anyone here gives is no more accurate than whatever you want.
Yeah, but just saying 'whatever the writer wants' is a non-answer. If you don't have an intelligent thought, then don't answer!
