Yes, I would totally expect that a translated number-to-word-conversion 
is absolutely non-trivial. In many languages this feature isn't 
necessary anyway because cheques are no longer in use. I was quite 
surprised that you needed it here.

Do you need only the greek version and no longer the english one? Then 
the easiest for you would be to replace the original and that's it.

If you want to switch the scheme files according to the system's locale: 
This is possible but not quite easy. I implemented something similar for 
the "locale-specific taxes" (disabled by defaule). Grep for the 
precompiler defines LOCALE_SPECIFIC_TAX, in src/tax/us and 
src/report/locale-specific/us. For that implementation, you need the 
original scheme file (here: "txf.scm") and one locale-specific scheme 
file (here: "txf-de_DE.scm"), and depending on the locale either the 
original one or the modified one is loaded.
