Germans and Nazis in Films in Translation

The other day, I watched (again) Captain Corelli's Mandolin, a movie about a Greek island during World War II. At some point, a character named Mandras says something like: "In this war, it is hard to know whom to trust, but one thing is clear: you can't trust the Germans." Hearing this sentence, I wondered how sentences like these are translated into German by film translators. Do they translate "Germans" or "Nazis"?
