"Who sits beside Tono?" is a less clunky English translation of this.

"Who sits next to Tono?"

Would that also sound less clunky ?

Who is sitting next to Tono should also be accepted

agree with the comments here...

'who sits/ is sitting next to tono'

'who sits/ is sitting beside tono'

'who sits/ is sitting alongside tono'

'who sits/ is sitting to the side of tono'

but definitely not, 'who sits/ is sitting on tono's side', which is the other 'correct solution' i was offered...

Better: Who sits to the side of Tono.

need "beside" or "next to" more natural in English
