I don't see why that makes Germany seem less important. As far as I know Russia is the only country that got totally different quotes. All the other countries just got the trailer translated. Why the German one has just one sentence translated? IMHO this presents Germany in a rather POSITIVE light; as a country where many people are well-versed in the English language. And really; would you have want them to translate something iconic like Kennedy's speech? That'd just sound strange ...
