How can i mount a NTFS partition, which has german umlaute (ä, ö, ü) in the filenames. I'm using the following mount command:
mount -t ntfs-3g UUID=5A9098309098149B /local/data -olocale=de_DE.UTF-8

Of the supposed options for mount, neither
iocharset will help, as they are not even defined for NTFS. Consult the man page
man mount.ntfs. Also, the default system locale is specified in
/etc/default/locale on Ubuntu systems. You have not told us what locale you use, is it really
en_US? That would be bad and so ’90s, as UTF-8 ought to be the standard by now.
Under a UTF-8 locale, a simple mount should do it:
mount -t ntfs UUID=5A9098309098149B /local/data
Other than that, I cannot help. It works for me.
