I am trying to export an org file to PDF via LaTeX but in German. I set #+LATEX_HEADER: \usepackage[ngerman]{babel} but when exporting org-mode adds english to the babel options.

That causes all the automatic titles,i.e. references, table of contents, etc., to be in English.

Is there a way to prevent the setting of the english option in babel?

    Either use #+language: de keyword locally or the org-export-default-language variable globally.
