WiDaF, the certificate for German in the workplace

The WiDaF certificate (German as a foreign language in business) was developed in 1996 by the German-French Chamber of Industry and Commerce to provide a standardised test of German language skills for the workplace. The WiDaF test therefore provides companies with a reliable tool for assessing the German language skills of their foreign employees and job applicants. There's no better way of proving your language skills in the job market than the WiDaF test. It enables you to show potential employers that you can cope with business negotiations, correspondence and many other typical workday situations in Germany.
