    Hi,

    I am working on some graphic design for a documentary and need the correct Hebrew translation for the phrase "jubilee year". I have a guess, based on Google translate and looking at some other images but as I do not know Hebrew myself, I would really appreciate it if someone could confirm that the phrase I have is correct.

    Basically, does the following image say "Jubilee Year" in Hebrew?

    Thank you so much in advance!

    Not exactly, since in Hebrew the word שנה (year) changes a bit in the construct state. Please note that the Niqqud (diacritics) of the word שנה is incorrect.

    A more accurate translation would be שְׁנַת הַיּוֹבֵל, in the definite form, which in my opinion fits better. Without Niqqud - שנת היובל.
