I am in the process of localizing an application and I can't wrap my head around a specific translation.
The user can enter a skill / prof. experience they have acquired or a language they speak besides their native tongue.
The user is is born somewhere in Britain and is a native English speaker. He also speaks French and enters "French" as a language skill. In a second step he is asked how proficient/good/experienced he is in this language, ranging from basic knowledge (1) up to fluid speaking (5).
I am looking for a terminology describing how profound a person is in a chosen skillset, like (basic/good/fluid/native tongue). A word which describes how well versed somebody a person in something.
Looking in the dictionary and several online translation sources I narrowed it down to:
In my opinion, in my ears "degree" sounds best, but I am not 100% happy with it. If it helps you, the native word we use in German is "Ausprägung".
