Doesn't really make sense to have a list template where no language except English defines all the parameters. I think we should restrict the list to the planets + Pluto and their moons. I mean, how likely is it that a user would want to translate "Hiʻiaka" or "Xiangliu" into Arabic or Finnish? Thadh (talk) 18:50, 13 December 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I could see the value of keeping pluto, but I think we could reduce it down even to just the major planets - i.e. the non-dwarf planets. We could potentially re-locate the dwarf planets to their own template, and maybe other objects to one, too, but I feel like that would be too far. My preferred option would be to trim this down to the major planets only, just axing the rest. Vininn126 (talk) 18:56, 13 December 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This table is labeled as for the "planets and most likely dwarf planets". It should thus be for the planets and most likely dwarf planets. If one of you thinks no-one is going to want to know the names of the moons in Arabic, then why have the table at all? There are questions here, such as whether 'Eris' should be 'Eris' or 'Eride' in Italian; there are names of the moons in Japanese, Russian and other languages that don't use Latin script that are not the IAU forms, etc. kwami (talk) 09:10, 28 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Either that wording should be changed (to something like "IAU planets, notable moons, Ceres, Pluto and its moons"), or else restore the Eris + Dysnomia column for the 3 universally accepted dwarfs. Eris and Dysnomia have other forms in many languages as they're both established classical names. kwami (talk) 09:41, 28 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
