That switch is dangerous and should not be used. It's not necessary to
make ls show umlauts.

That is not true.
msb:/tmp> cd foo
msb:/tmp/foo> touch äüö
msb:/tmp/foo> rm -i äüö
rm: remove `äüö'? y
Both ls and rm will show the desired behaviour if the LC_* variables are
These are the settings that the OP probably wants. To make the system
"more German", set the necessary variables to "de_DE", but DON'T do this
blindly for all of them, only for those that you know will fix your
problem (e.g. if you want to get German messages, set LC_MESSAGES=de_DE,
if you want ls to sort in German, set LC_COLLATE=de_DE).
And the most important thing:
Never ever set LC_ALL!!!!
