    Hello,
    what is the difference between "good knowledge in" and "good knowledge of" ?

    Don't we use "good knowledge in" when the word that follow is more general ?

    For example, do I say : I have good knowledge in office software or I have good knowledge of office software ?

    Thank you in advance

    Personally I have never heard 'good knowledge in' - maybe it's used somewhere, but you should be pretty safe if you always use 'good knowledge of'

    When you're talking about a domain, you better use of.

    OK thank you.
    And how would you translate "solides connaissance" ? It is stronger than good knowledge, isn't it ?
