At least until such time as I need Greek letters in diagrams, I fixed the Inkscape problem by temporarily deleting Greek from the OS System Preferences > Language & Region “Preferred languages”; opening Inkscape, whose menus are now in English; and in the Inkscape preferences, change the language from System to the particular one I wanted, namely, English; then in OS System Preferences added Greek back as a secondary language.
