The easiest route is to know the names and sounds of the music notes, know the instrument, know standard notation, use your ear and figure out your positions and chord voicings yourself. There is nothing to transpose. The pitches stay the same, what changes is your finger positions on the frets.
If you want help with fingerings, you can pick up a cello pedagogy book and that may help you out in a rigorous and progressive way. The 5ths tuning, C-G-D-A will give you the same open string (different octaves) as cellos, violas, and most 5th tuning upright bassist. Music for cello will become a lot easier to play on a 5ths tuned bass as the open spread voicing become more accessible.
Here is a page to get you started. Enjoy! http://www.celloonline.com/cellofingeringchart.htm
Oh.. the cello has a shorter vibrating string length than an electric bass, it's more like a guitar. So the 4 notes plus two extensions per hand position is too much for a person on an electric bass. Just simplify it, use less notes per position.
