back-transliterating Arabic

Okay, I came across an Arabic bibliographic entry I need to make proper. It was taken in ASCII, and I need to transfer it back to Arabic. One problem: I have no idea how to go about it.

I have a title, translator and publishing company that need back-transliterating to Arabic spelling. I also need to know what the title means (for the record, the original book is title "A very long night"). Recommendations for a proper Latin transliterations are also appreciated.

title: Laylah _ta_ilah jiddan
translator: Mu_hammad ‘Al_i al-Y_usif_i (can I leave it as "Mohammad Ali al-Yussifi"?)
publisher: D_ar al-Jun_ub li-al-Nashr (can it be translated to English?)
