English translation:wisdom/knowledge
Explanation:
That is right.

sabiduria is wisdom (Oxford Spanish Dictionary)
and
conocimiento is knowledge.

We usually use sabiduria when speaking of a person who knows through education or experience.

Hope this helps

Explanation:
Hi Tabitha. Yes, this is exactly the difference. For example "Arreglo el problema con sabiduria" (meaning, with wisdom; he knew what to do.)
Conocimiento is simply "knowledge".
