    Hello everybody!

    I am translating an Annual Performance Review and am having trouble translating the nuance of a few categories that the employer must review for the employee. There are three categories:

    Compétences SAVOIR-FAIRE
    Compétences SAVOIR MÉTIER
    Compétences comportementales

    My attempt:
    Skills, Savoir-faire
    Business skills
    Behavioral skills

    Thanks so much in advance!

    How about "knowledge" for savoir-faire?

    Hi Transfer, yeah, that is what I was thinking too. Thanks so much!

    Hi Michelvar, great, thanks so much! Will probably end up doing this, or something like "skills" and "professional expertise/knowledge".

    Thanks to both of you!

    savoir-faire may refer to broader transferable skills which are not specific to one particular trade or occupation.
