bibiolographic knowledge question

I'm looking at a job posting and it asks for "bibliographic knowledge of at least one non-English language." How would you, oh dear actually employed catalogers, define this? I can sound out all the letters Cyrillic text, and understand easy stuff (children's books and the like), but this job most likely wouldn't have the successful candidate cataloging anything "easy." I assume that's not enough, but ya never know.

Is there an official definition? Or could you just give an off-the-cuff one?

Thanks so much!

(For some reason I keep flashing on Top Gun where Goose and Maverick are making the bet: "...carnal knowledge, of a woman this time.." or something along those lines.)
