I think it translates to "Earth is round." I don't think you need the trailing 的 but it doesn't seem to change the meaning.

Nǐhǎo Luóbótè, Thank you for your reply. I think you are right about the trailing 的. Have fun learning Chinese. Zàijiàn Yuēhàn

你们好! I would be inclined to keep the 的 otherwise it sounds incomplete. You could omit the 的 is you wrote instead, 地球很圆 but even then I would be inclined to add a 的. Keep up the good work! - Lin Ping
