Application langauge

Maybe a stupid question, but what language should one write an application in. I've seen a job that is advertised in both French and German (in Biel/Bienne) but in which they also specify that the candidate must have knowledge of English. Should I submit my cv and application letter in English or in either French or German, knowing that if I get called for interview, they will know as soon as I open my mouth that I had help in writing it? (I can get by in both but am not fluent in either.)

Re: Application langauge

Find out what is the work language of the company and take that one, maybe it is english after all. Biel/Bienne is otherwise bilingual, not triligual. I would call them.
