If those hypothetical Greek users understand and remember find-file
_today_, when it is described in a purely English manual, they won't
have a harder time when the explanations are in Greek.  Just like a
Greek book talking about `typedef' in C or `defun' in Lisp will be
easier for them to read than an English book.
