I have a long list of NCBI taxonomic ids for organisms and I want to write a script to get their corresponding translation tables. Is there a way to do this through Entrez?
(packages in R, Python etc. would be fine too)

You can find them here at least: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/Taxonomy/Utils/wprintgc.cgi
You can download the complete list of codes (using FTP) here.
However, to link a specific organism to a specific codon usage table, you'll need to do a bit of extra work. Perhaps the script here can give you a starting point?
