English: "on this blessed planet"

Turkish: "bu mübarek gezegende"

Dutch: "op deze gezegende planeet"

Cool tidbit- the word gezegen is derived from the word gezmek, to wander, just like our word planet is derived from an ancient Greek word meaning to wander.

Gezegen is a calque of planet.

Why is "i am on this planet alone" an incorrect translation
