Hope to see you taking part!

Since you've translated "to Eilat" correctly, I guess that might be a typo of sorts as well.

Easy to miss that little Yod I guess...

הביטלס מבריסטול? לא, [s]אתם[/s]הם מליברפול.
אתם is "you" plural, masculine or mixed. The rest are transliteration issues.
I don't want to get too deep into transliteration, it's debated among Hebrew speakers as well of course In general, the sound T is represented by ט, the sound K by ק, and the sound V by ו. There are some other rules which seem too natural to me... maybe I'll just write the corrct forms and you'll get the hang of it:
סטרטפורד-על-אבון (I think in this case the "upon" would be translated)

Stacy wrote:Well.. Eilat is written with an aleph then a yod אֵילַת, I think, but is there any rule on how to translate dipthongs with aleph and yod? Is it always the "day" diphthong with aleph and yod in this order? Sorry I can't be more accurate
