 In what way are our compositions of English into Greek not real

I'm not sure I should be the recipient of the question.
Greek is Greek.
On the other hand, consciously working from English to Greek
would increase the influence of English on the outcome.
And a non-mother-tongue speaker/writer would
always be liable to less-than-acceptable Greek production.
But Greek is Greek.
