Well the easiest thing to do is to download the latest source for .deb
packages available (http://packages.debian.org/kde-i18n-el could help) and
unpack them (with dpkg-source -x) somewhere on your disk. Replace then all
relevant files with the news ones and (inside kde-i18n-el/ directory) then

        fakeroot debian/rules binary

If everything goes well (you will have to probably install some additional
packages to make at least rudimentary development environment), do

        cd ..
        dpkg -i kde-i18n-el*.deb

(This will be probably very incorrect package, so never distribute it, but
it should work perfectly well for you; you may need to increase versions of
packages required for the compilation in debian/control, field Depends:).

Otherwise, the introduction to .deb packages building is in documents
contained in the package maint-guide, if you want to know more and create
correct packages.

We are told that [St. Anthony] once fell into dejection, finding
uninterrupted contemplation above his strength; but was taught to
apply himself at intervals to manual labour by a vision of an
angel who appeared platting mats of palm-tree leaves, then rising
to pray, and after some time sitting down again to work; and who
at length said to him, "Do thus, and thou shalt be saved."
