I need to translate python 2.5 script for ArcGIS 9.3 to python 2.7 for ArcGIS 10.3.

Our office has now all computers with ArcGIS 10.3. So, I need to translate these scripts to arcgis 10.3. Could anyone give me some information please?

It is possible, but you have to put some effort into it. Sometimes even the spelling of an 10.0 and 10.3 script is different.

Check this question for a good overview: Migrating ArcPy scripts from ArcGIS 9.3 to 10?.

I would also recommend you to check out the data access module (arcpy.da) mainly for cursors, which is much faster than the regular cursors.
