As several other string functions, the two functions we are talking about here
come from Python2:
http://docs.python.org/library/string.html#string-functions
http://docs.python.org/library/string.html#string.translate


The Python docs tell the size of the table too:

string.translate(s, table[, deletechars])
    Delete all characters from s that are in deletechars (if present), and then
translate the characters using table, which must be a 256-character string
giving the translation for each character value, indexed by its ordinal. If
table is None, then only the character deletion step is performed.


In Python some times I have built the translation table manually. If makeTrans
returns an opaque or privately defined struct this is not possible.
