When giving pictures the attribute "green" ("grün") in German version in Lightroom 5.7 it makes it impossible to export those pictures. Seems that the umlaut "ü" is not known by Lightroom which creates a xml error.

Other than updating to LR 5.7.1 which might have fixed the issue, I'm not sure what to tell you, and now that LR 6 is out LR 5 won't receive any updates so however it acts, now, is it.

Can you export one of your green photos as a DNG, upload it to www.dropbox.com (or similar site) and post a public share link to it, here?  I'd like to see if LR 6/CC 2015 still has the issue and have the English version so cannot reproduce the issue, myself.

In Metadata menu > Color Label Set and change Grün to Grun (or something else entirely), then use the Metadata filters to select all of the photos with the Grün label and change it to the new one.

Update from Adobe:

We have verified this issue in the LR6.5 latest build on Win 10/Mac 10.11 DEU OS and this issue has not reproduced.

Steps below:

1.Import pictures then take the label of those pictures as green.

2.Input "grün" in Metadata(say Titel&Creator) 3.Export those pcitures.

4.Pictures can export successfully.

See the screenshot.
