Well, it's correct, but the real translation will depend on the context.

a family-bat familia


Wrong. The numeral "Bat" goes after the noun.

They are all here. Haiek gustiok hemen daude.


The sense of the sentence is to underline that "all" are here. Thus, this is the part of the sentence that immediately precedes the verb:

Den-denak daude hemen.
