Fluent English vs. Sticking to Latin when translating

Hi guys!

When translating the Aeneid and unseens, how do you find the balance between nice, natural English and making sure all the grammatical features are noted? If I stray too far from a strictly literal translation (which is often really dodgy sounding in English), will it seem like I don't understand a particular construction?

Thanks heaps.  :D
