style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"><b> Investment Objective </b></p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">The Fund seeks total return, consisting of income and capital appreciation. </p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"><b> Fees and Expenses </b></p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">These tables are intended to help you understand the various costs and expenses you will pay if you buy and hold shares of the Fund. You may qualify for sales charge discounts if you and your family invest, or agree to invest in the future, at least $50,000 in the aggregate in specified classes of certain <i>Wells Fargo Advantage Funds</i>®. More information about these and other discounts is available from your financial professional and in "A Choice of Share Classes" and "Reductions and Waivers of Sales Charges" on pages 23 and 26 of the Prospectus and "Additional Purchase and Redemption Information" on page 47 of the Statement of Additional Information.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"><b>Shareholder Fees (Fees paid directly from your investment) </b></p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"><b> Annual Fund Operating Expenses (expenses that you pay each year as a percentage of the value of your investment) </b></p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"><b> Example of Expenses </b></p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">The example below is intended to help you compare the costs of investing in the Fund with the costs of investing in other mutual funds. The example assumes a $10,000 initial investment, 5% annual total return, and that operating expenses remain the same as in the tables above. The example also assumes that the Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses After Fee Waiver shown above will only be in place for the length of the current waiver commitment. Although your actual costs may be higher or lower, based on these assumptions your costs would be:</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"><b> Portfolio Turnover </b></p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">The Fund pays transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells securities (or "turns over" its portfolio). A higher portfolio turnover rate may indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when Fund shares are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not reflected in annual fund operating expenses or in the example, affect the Fund's performance. During the most recent fiscal year, the Fund's portfolio turnover rate was 79% of the average value of its portfolio.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"><b> Principal Investment Strategies </b></p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">Under normal circumstances, we invest:</p> <ul><li> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:0;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">at least 80% of the Fund's net assets in foreign debt securities, including obligations of governments, corporate entities or supranational agencies, denominated in various currencies;</p> </li><li> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:0;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">in at least three countries or supranational agencies;</p> </li><li> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:0;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">up to 35% of the Fund's total assets in debt securities that are below investment grade; and</p> </li><li> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:0;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">up to 5% of the Fund's total assets in debt obligations or similar securities denominated in the local currencies of countries that have a sovereign debt rating below investment-grade.</p> </li></ul> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">We invest principally in foreign debt securities denominated in various currencies, including obligations of governments, corporate entities or supranational agencies. We will invest in at least three countries or supranational agencies. We may also invest in investment-grade and below investment-grade debt securities (often called "high yield" securities or "junk bonds") of both U.S. and foreign issuers, including issuers from emerging markets. As part of our below investment-grade debt securities investment strategy, we will generally invest in securities that are rated at least B- by Standard &amp; Poor's or B3 by Moody's, or an equivalent quality rating from another Nationally Recognized Statistical Ratings Organization, or are deemed by us to be of comparable quality. Under normal circumstances, we invest up to 5% of the Fund's total assets in debt obligations or similar securities denominated in the local currencies of countries that have a sovereign debt rating below investment-grade. Currency is managed as a separate asset class and we may enter into foreign currency exchange contracts to gain exposure, for hedging purposes or to manage risk. We may purchase a foreign currency on a spot or forward basis in order to benefit from potential appreciation of such currency relative to the U.S. dollar or to other currencies. The Fund may enter into foreign currency exchange contracts to gain or hedge currency exposure or control risk.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">While we may purchase securities of any maturity or duration, under normal circumstances, we expect the Fund's dollar-weighted average effective maturity to be between 5 and 14 years, and dollar-weighted average effective duration to be between 3 1/2 and 10 years. "Dollar-Weighted Average Effective Maturity" is a measure of the average time until the final payment of principal and interest is due on fixed income securities in the Fund's portfolio. "Dollar-Weighted Average Effective Duration" is an aggregate measure of the sensitivity of a fund's fixed income portfolio securities to changes in interest rates. As a general matter, the price of a fixed income security with a longer effective duration will fluctuate more in response to changes in interest rates than the price of a fixed income security with a shorter effective duration.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">We use proprietary models and systems to assess and highlight areas of relative value around the world. Model-driven forecasts are created using fundamental economic inputs to generate economic forecasts on the global bond markets. With these forecasts, an optimization process accounts for multiple iteration scenarios to create, what we believe to be, an optimal portfolio strategy. The output of the model process is intended to provide relative valuations for determining an over, or underweight of country-specific bond markets. Similarly, currencies are valued for their potential returns or to hedge currency exposure. These macro 'top-down' quantitative models are used in conjunction with our investment experience and allied to a 'bottom-up' security selection process.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">Sell decisions are valuation-driven based on our models and our fundamental analysis. We may also sell a security due to changes in portfolio strategy or cash flow needs.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"><b> Principal Investment Risks </b></p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">An investment in the Fund may lose money, is not a deposit of Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. or its affiliates, is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other governmental agency, and is primarily subject to the risks briefly summarized below.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>Counter-Party Risk.</b> A Fund may incur a loss if the other party to an investment contract, such as a derivative or a repurchase or reverse repurchase agreement, fails to fulfill its contractual obligation to the Fund.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>Debt Securities Risk.</b> The issuer of a debt security may fail to pay interest or principal when due, and changes in market interest rates may reduce the value of debt securities or reduce the Fund's returns.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>Derivatives Risk.</b> The use of derivatives such as futures, options and swap agreements, can lead to losses, including those magnified by leverage, particularly when derivatives are used to enhance return rather than offset risk.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>Emerging Markets Risk.</b> Foreign investment risks are typically greater for securities in emerging markets, which can be more vulnerable to recessions, currency volatility, inflation and market failure.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>Foreign Currency Transactions Risk</b>. Foreign securities are often denominated in foreign currencies. As a result, the value of a Fund's shares is affected by changes in exchange rates. Use of hedging techniques cannot protect against exchange rate risk perfectly. If the Fund's adviser is incorrect in its judgment of future exchange rate relationships, the Fund could be in a less advantageous position than if such a hedge had not been established.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>Foreign Investment Risk.</b> Foreign investments face the potential of heightened illiquidity, greater price volatility and adverse effects of political, regulatory, tax, currency, economic or other macroeconomic developments.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>High Yield Securities Risk.</b> High yield securities, i.e. "junk bonds," are debt securities that are rated below investment-grade, are unrated and deemed by us to be below investment-grade, or are in default at the time of purchase. These securities are considered speculative by major credit rating agencies, have a much greater risk of default or of not returning principal and tend to be more volatile and less liquid than higher-rated securities of similar maturity.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>Issuer Risk.</b> The value of a security may decline because of adverse events or circumstances that directly relate to conditions at the issuer or any entity providing it credit or liquidity support.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>Leverage Risk.</b> Leverage created by borrowing or certain investments, such as derivatives and reverse repurchase agreements, can diminish the Fund's performance and increase the volatility of the Fund's net asset value.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>Liquidity Risk.</b> A security may not be able to be sold at the time desired or without adversely affecting the price.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>Management Risk.</b> There is no guarantee of the Fund's performance or that the Fund will meet its objective. The market value of your investment may decline and you may suffer investment loss.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>Market Risk.</b> The market price of securities owned by the Fund may rapidly or unpredictably decline due to factors affecting securities markets generally or particular industries.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>Regional Risk</b>. The Fund's investments may be concentrated in a specific geographical region and thus, may be more adversely affected by events in that region than investments of a fund that does not have such a regional focus.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>Regulatory Risk.</b> Changes in government regulations may adversely affect the value of a security.

The Fund's average annual total returns are compared to the performance of one or more indices. Past performance before and after taxes is no guarantee of future results. Current month-end performance is available on the Fund's Web site at <u>wellsfargoadvantagefunds.com</u>.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"><b>Calendar Year Total Returns for Class A as of 12/31 each year (Returns do not reflect sales charges and would be lower if they did)</b></p> Highest Quarter: 3rd Quarter 2010 0.1148 Lowest Quarter: 3rd Quarter 2008 -0.0525 <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b> Average Annual Total Returns for the periods ended 12/31/2012 (Returns reflect applicable sales charges) </b> </p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">After-tax returns are calculated using the historical highest individual federal marginal income tax rates and do not reflect the impact of state, local or foreign taxes.

You may qualify for sales charge discounts if you and your family invest, or agree to invest in the future, at least $50,000 in the aggregate in specified classes of certain <i>Wells Fargo Advantage Funds</i>®. More information about these and other discounts is available from your financial professional and in "A Choice of Share Classes" and "Reductions and Waivers of Sales Charges" on pages 23 and 26 of the Prospectus and "Additional Purchase and Redemption Information" on page 47 of the Statement of Additional Information.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"><b>Shareholder Fees (fees paid directly from your investment) </b></p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"><b> Annual Fund Operating Expenses (expenses that you pay each year as a percentage of the value of your investment) </b></p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"><b> Example of Expenses </b></p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">The example below is intended to help you compare the costs of investing in the Fund with the costs of investing in other mutual funds. The example assumes a $10,000 initial investment, 5% annual total return, and that operating expenses remain the same as in the tables above. The example also assumes that the Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses After Fee Waiver shown above will only be in place for the length of the current waiver commitment. Although your actual costs may be higher or lower, based on these assumptions your costs would be:</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"><b> Portfolio Turnover </b></p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">The Fund pays transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells securities (or "turns over" its portfolio). A higher portfolio turnover rate may indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when Fund shares are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not reflected in annual fund operating expenses or in the example, affect the Fund's performance. For the period from May 31, 2012 (commencement of operations) to October 31, 2012, the Fund's portfolio turnover rate was 120% of the average value of its portfolio.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"><b> Principal Investment Strategies </b></p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">Under normal circumstances, we invest:</p> <ul><li> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:0;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">at least 80% of the Fund's net assets in debt securities issued by governments, corporate entities or supranational agencies, that are tied economically to emerging market countries and denominated in local currencies;</p> </li><li> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:0;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">in at least six countries or supranational agencies; and</p> </li><li> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:0;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">up to 20% of the Fund's total assets in debt securities denominated in currencies of developed markets but issued by governments or corporate entities from emerging market countries.</p> </li></ul> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">Emerging market countries generally are those countries defined as having an emerging or developing economy by the World Bank or its related organizations, or the United Nations or its authorities. The emerging market countries in which the Fund may invest currently include, but are not limited to, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, China, Colombia, Czech Republic, Egypt, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, Peru, the Philippines, Poland, Russia, South Africa, South Korea, Thailand, Turkey and Uruguay. We consider a security to be "tied economically to" an emerging market country if it is principally traded on the country's securities markets or if the issuer is organized or principally operates in the country, derives a majority of its income from its operations within the country or has a majority of its assets within the country.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">We may invest in investment-grade and below investment-grade debt securities. While we may purchase securities of any maturity or duration, under normal circumstances, we expect the dollar-weighted average effective maturity of the Fund's portfolio to be between 3 and 10 years, and the dollar-weighted average effective duration of the Fund's portfolio to be between 2 ½ to 8 years. "Dollar-Weighted Average Effective Maturity" is a measure of the average time until the final payment of principal and interest is due on fixed income securities in the Fund's portfolio. "Dollar-Weighted Average Effective Duration" is an aggregate measure of the sensitivity of a fund's fixed income portfolio securities to changes in interest rates. As a general matter, the price of a fixed income security with a longer effective duration will fluctuate more in response to changes in interest rates than the price of a fixed income security with a shorter effective duration. The Fund is considered to be non-diversified.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">Currency is managed as a separate asset class and we may enter into foreign currency exchange contracts to gain or hedge currency exposure or control risk. We may purchase a foreign currency on a spot or forward basis in order to benefit from potential appreciation of such currency relative to the U.S. dollar or to other currencies.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">We use proprietary models and systems to assess and highlight areas of relative value around the world. Model-driven forecasts are created using fundamental economic inputs to generate economic forecasts on the emerging bond markets. With these forecasts, an optimization process accounts for multiple iteration scenarios to create, what we believe to be, an optimal portfolio strategy. The output of the model process is intended to provide relative valuations for determining an over- or underweight of country-specific bond markets. Similarly, currencies are valued for their potential returns or to hedge currency exposure. These macro 'top-down' quantitative models are used in conjunction with our investment experience and allied to a 'bottom-up' security selection process. Sell decisions are valuation-driven based on our models and our fundamental analysis. We may also sell a security due to changes in portfolio strategy or cash flow needs.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"><b> Principal Investment Risks </b></p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">An investment in the Fund may lose money, is not a deposit of Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. or its affiliates, is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other governmental agency, and is primarily subject to the risks briefly summarized below.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>Counter-Party Risk.</b> A Fund may incur a loss if the other party to an investment contract, such as a derivative or a repurchase or reverse repurchase agreement, fails to fulfill its contractual obligation to the Fund.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>Debt Securities Risk.</b> The issuer of a debt security may fail to pay interest or principal when due, and changes in market interest rates may reduce the value of debt securities or reduce the Fund's returns.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>Derivatives Risk.</b> The use of derivatives such as futures, options and swap agreements, can lead to losses, including those magnified by leverage, particularly when derivatives are used to enhance return rather than offset risk.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>Emerging Markets Risk.</b> Foreign investment risks are typically greater for securities in emerging markets, which can be more vulnerable to recessions, currency volatility, inflation and market failure.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>Foreign Currency Transactions Risk</b>. Foreign securities are often denominated in foreign currencies. As a result, the value of a Fund's shares is affected by changes in exchange rates. Use of hedging techniques cannot protect against exchange rate risk perfectly. If the Fund's adviser is incorrect in its judgment of future exchange rate relationships, the Fund could be in a less advantageous position than if such a hedge had not been established.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>Foreign Investment Risk.</b> Foreign investments face the potential of heightened illiquidity, greater price volatility and adverse effects of political, regulatory, tax, currency, economic or other macroeconomic developments.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>High Yield Securities Risk.</b> High yield securities, i.e. "junk bonds," are debt securities that are rated below investment-grade, are unrated and deemed by us to be below investment-grade, or are in default at the time of purchase. These securities are considered speculative by major credit rating agencies, have a much greater risk of default or of not returning principal and tend to be more volatile and less liquid than higher-rated securities of similar maturity.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>Issuer Risk.</b> The value of a security may decline because of adverse events or circumstances that directly relate to conditions at the issuer or any entity providing it credit or liquidity support.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>Leverage Risk.</b> Leverage created by borrowing or certain investments, such as derivatives and reverse repurchase agreements, can diminish the Fund's performance and increase the volatility of the Fund's net asset value.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>Liquidity Risk.</b> A security may not be able to be sold at the time desired or without adversely affecting the price.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>Management Risk.</b> There is no guarantee of the Fund's performance or that the Fund will meet its objective. The market value of your investment may decline and you may suffer investment loss.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>Market Risk.</b> The market price of securities owned by the Fund may rapidly or unpredictably decline due to factors affecting securities markets generally or particular industries.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>Non-Diversification Risk.</b> A Fund that is considered "non-diversified" under the 1940 Act is more susceptible to financial, economic or market events impacting an issuer of portfolio securities than a "diversified" fund. Default by the issuer of a single security in the portfolio may have a greater negative effect than a similar default in a diversified portfolio.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>Regional Risk</b>. The Fund's investments may be concentrated in a specific geographical region and thus, may be more adversely affected by events in that region than investments of a fund that does not have such a regional focus.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>Regulatory Risk.</b> Changes in government regulations may adversely affect the value of a security. An insufficiently regulated industry or market might also permit inappropriate practices that adversely affect an investment.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>U.S. Government Obligations Risk.</b> U.S. Government obligations may be adversely impacted by changes in interest rates, and may not be backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. Government.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"><b> Performance </b></p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">Since the Fund does not have annual returns for at least one calendar year, no performance information is shown.</p> <div style="display:none">~http://wfaincmefnds-20130301/role/ShareholderFeesDataAAAA column period compact * column rr_ProspectusShareClassAxis compact * row primary compact * row dei_LegalEntityAxis compact wfaincmefnds-20130301_S000037205Member ~</div> 0.045 0 0 0.01 <div style="display:none">~ http://wfaincmefnds-20130301/role/OperatingExpensesDataAAAA column period compact * column rr_ProspectusShareClassAxis compact * row primary compact * row dei_LegalEntityAxis compact wfaincmefnds-20130301_S000037205Member ~</div> 0.0065 0 0.0162 0.0227 -0.0104 0.0123 0.0065 0.0075 0.0162 0.0302 -0.0104 0.0198 <div style="display:none">~ http://wfaincmefnds-20130301/role/ExpenseExampleAAAA column period compact * column rr_ProspectusShareClassAxis compact * row primary compact * row dei_LegalEntityAxis compact wfaincmefnds-20130301_S000037205Member ~</div> 570 1032 301 836 <div style="display:none">~ http://wfaincmefnds-20130301/role/ExpenseExampleNoRedemptionAAAA column period compact * column rr_ProspectusShareClassAxis compact * row primary compact * row dei_LegalEntityAxis compact wfaincmefnds-20130301_S000037205Member ~</div> 201 836 <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"><b> Investment Objective </b></p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">The Fund seeks total return, consisting of income and capital appreciation. </p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"><b> Fees and Expenses </b></p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">These tables are intended to help you understand the various costs and expenses you will pay if you buy and hold shares of the Fund.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"><b>Shareholder Fees (fees paid directly from your investment) </b></p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"><b> Annual Fund Operating Expenses (expenses that you pay each year as a percentage of the value of your investment) </b></p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"><b> Example of Expenses </b></p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">The example below is intended to help you compare the costs of investing in the Fund with the costs of investing in other mutual funds.

A higher portfolio turnover rate may indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when Fund shares are held in a taxable account.

We will invest in at least three countries or supranational agencies. We may also invest in investment-grade and below investment-grade debt securities (often called "high yield" securities or "junk bonds") of both U.S. and foreign issuers, including issuers from emerging markets. As part of our below investment-grade debt securities investment strategy, we will generally invest in securities that are rated at least B- by Standard &amp; Poor's or B3 by Moody's, or an equivalent quality rating from another Nationally Recognized Statistical Ratings Organization, or are deemed by us to be of comparable quality. Under normal circumstances, we invest up to 5% of the Fund's total assets in debt obligations or similar securities denominated in the local currencies of countries that have a sovereign debt rating below investment-grade. Currency is managed as a separate asset class and we may enter into foreign currency exchange contracts to gain exposure, for hedging purposes or to manage risk. We may purchase a foreign currency on a spot or forward basis in order to benefit from potential appreciation of such currency relative to the U.S. dollar or to other currencies. The Fund may enter into foreign currency exchange contracts to gain or hedge currency exposure or control risk.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">While we may purchase securities of any maturity or duration, under normal circumstances, we expect the Fund's dollar-weighted average effective maturity to be between 5 and 14 years, and dollar-weighted average effective duration to be between 3 1/2 and 10 years.

The example assumes a $10,000 initial investment, 5% annual total return, and that operating expenses remain the same as in the tables above. The example also assumes that the Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses After Fee Waiver shown above will only be in place for the length of the current waiver commitment. Although your actual costs may be higher or lower, based on these assumptions your costs would be:</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"><b> Portfolio Turnover </b></p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">The Fund pays transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells securities (or "turns over" its portfolio). A higher portfolio turnover rate may indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when Fund shares are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not reflected in annual fund operating expenses or in the example, affect the Fund's performance. For the period from May 31, 2012 (commencement of operations) to October 31, 2012, the Fund's portfolio turnover rate was 120% of the average value of its portfolio.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"><b> Principal Investment Strategies </b></p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">Under normal circumstances, we invest:</p> <ul><li> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:0;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">at least 80% of the Fund's net assets in debt securities issued by governments, corporate entities or supranational agencies, that are tied economically to emerging market countries and denominated in local currencies;</p> </li><li> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:0;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">in at least six countries or supranational agencies; and</p> </li><li> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:0;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">up to 20% of the Fund's total assets in debt securities denominated in currencies of developed markets but issued by governments or corporate entities from emerging market countries.</p> </li></ul> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">Emerging market countries generally are those countries defined as having an emerging or developing economy by the World Bank or its related organizations, or the United Nations or its authorities. The emerging market countries in which the Fund may invest currently include, but are not limited to, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, China, Colombia, Czech Republic, Egypt, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, Peru, the Philippines, Poland, Russia, South Africa, South Korea, Thailand, Turkey and Uruguay. We consider a security to be "tied economically to" an emerging market country if it is principally traded on the country's securities markets or if the issuer is organized or principally operates in the country, derives a majority of its income from its operations within the country or has a majority of its assets within the country.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">We may invest in investment-grade and below investment-grade debt securities. While we may purchase securities of any maturity or duration, under normal circumstances, we expect the dollar-weighted average effective maturity of the Fund's portfolio to be between 3 and 10 years, and the dollar-weighted average effective duration of the Fund's portfolio to be between 2 ½ to 8 years. "Dollar-Weighted Average Effective Maturity" is a measure of the average time until the final payment of principal and interest is due on fixed income securities in the Fund's portfolio. "Dollar-Weighted Average Effective Duration" is an aggregate measure of the sensitivity of a fund's fixed income portfolio securities to changes in interest rates. As a general matter, the price of a fixed income security with a longer effective duration will fluctuate more in response to changes in interest rates than the price of a fixed income security with a shorter effective duration. The Fund is considered to be non-diversified.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">Currency is managed as a separate asset class and we may enter into foreign currency exchange contracts to gain or hedge currency exposure or control risk. We may purchase a foreign currency on a spot or forward basis in order to benefit from potential appreciation of such currency relative to the U.S. dollar or to other currencies.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">We use proprietary models and systems to assess and highlight areas of relative value around the world. Model-driven forecasts are created using fundamental economic inputs to generate economic forecasts on the emerging bond markets. With these forecasts, an optimization process accounts for multiple iteration scenarios to create, what we believe to be, an optimal portfolio strategy. The output of the model process is intended to provide relative valuations for determining an over- or underweight of country-specific bond markets. Similarly, currencies are valued for their potential returns or to hedge currency exposure. These macro 'top-down' quantitative models are used in conjunction with our investment experience and allied to a 'bottom-up' security selection process. Sell decisions are valuation-driven based on our models and our fundamental analysis. We may also sell a security due to changes in portfolio strategy or cash flow needs.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"><b> Principal Investment Risks </b></p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">An investment in the Fund may lose money, is not a deposit of Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. or its affiliates, is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other governmental agency, and is primarily subject to the risks briefly summarized below.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>Counter-Party Risk.</b> A Fund may incur a loss if the other party to an investment contract, such as a derivative or a repurchase or reverse repurchase agreement, fails to fulfill its contractual obligation to the Fund.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>Debt Securities Risk.</b> The issuer of a debt security may fail to pay interest or principal when due, and changes in market interest rates may reduce the value of debt securities or reduce the Fund's returns.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>Derivatives Risk.</b> The use of derivatives such as futures, options and swap agreements, can lead to losses, including those magnified by leverage, particularly when derivatives are used to enhance return rather than offset risk.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>Emerging Markets Risk.</b> Foreign investment risks are typically greater for securities in emerging markets, which can be more vulnerable to recessions, currency volatility, inflation and market failure.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>Foreign Currency Transactions Risk</b>. Foreign securities are often denominated in foreign currencies. As a result, the value of a Fund's shares is affected by changes in exchange rates. Use of hedging techniques cannot protect against exchange rate risk perfectly.

Under normal circumstances, we invest up to 5% of the Fund's total assets in debt obligations or similar securities denominated in the local currencies of countries that have a sovereign debt rating below investment-grade. Currency is managed as a separate asset class and we may enter into foreign currency exchange contracts to gain exposure, for hedging purposes or to manage risk. We may purchase a foreign currency on a spot or forward basis in order to benefit from potential appreciation of such currency relative to the U.S. dollar or to other currencies.

The example assumes a $10,000 initial investment, 5% annual total return, and that operating expenses remain the same as in the tables above. The example also assumes that the Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses After Fee Waiver shown above will only be in place for the length of the current waiver commitment. Although your actual costs may be higher or lower, based on these assumptions your costs would be:</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"><b> Portfolio Turnover </b></p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">The Fund pays transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells securities (or "turns over" its portfolio). A higher portfolio turnover rate may indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when Fund shares are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not reflected in annual fund operating expenses or in the example, affect the Fund's performance. For the period from May 31, 2012 (commencement of operations) to October 31, 2012, the Fund's portfolio turnover rate was 120% of the average value of its portfolio.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"><b> Principal Investment Strategies </b></p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">Under normal circumstances, we invest:</p> <ul><li> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:0;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">at least 80% of the Fund's net assets in debt securities issued by governments, corporate entities or supranational agencies, that are tied economically to emerging market countries and denominated in local currencies;</p> </li><li> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:0;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">in at least six countries or supranational agencies; and</p> </li><li> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:0;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">up to 20% of the Fund's total assets in debt securities denominated in currencies of developed markets but issued by governments or corporate entities from emerging market countries.</p> </li></ul> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">Emerging market countries generally are those countries defined as having an emerging or developing economy by the World Bank or its related organizations, or the United Nations or its authorities. The emerging market countries in which the Fund may invest currently include, but are not limited to, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, China, Colombia, Czech Republic, Egypt, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, Peru, the Philippines, Poland, Russia, South Africa, South Korea, Thailand, Turkey and Uruguay. We consider a security to be "tied economically to" an emerging market country if it is principally traded on the country's securities markets or if the issuer is organized or principally operates in the country, derives a majority of its income from its operations within the country or has a majority of its assets within the country.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">We may invest in investment-grade and below investment-grade debt securities. While we may purchase securities of any maturity or duration, under normal circumstances, we expect the dollar-weighted average effective maturity of the Fund's portfolio to be between 3 and 10 years, and the dollar-weighted average effective duration of the Fund's portfolio to be between 2 ½ to 8 years. "Dollar-Weighted Average Effective Maturity" is a measure of the average time until the final payment of principal and interest is due on fixed income securities in the Fund's portfolio. "Dollar-Weighted Average Effective Duration" is an aggregate measure of the sensitivity of a fund's fixed income portfolio securities to changes in interest rates. As a general matter, the price of a fixed income security with a longer effective duration will fluctuate more in response to changes in interest rates than the price of a fixed income security with a shorter effective duration. The Fund is considered to be non-diversified.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">Currency is managed as a separate asset class and we may enter into foreign currency exchange contracts to gain or hedge currency exposure or control risk. We may purchase a foreign currency on a spot or forward basis in order to benefit from potential appreciation of such currency relative to the U.S. dollar or to other currencies.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">We use proprietary models and systems to assess and highlight areas of relative value around the world. Model-driven forecasts are created using fundamental economic inputs to generate economic forecasts on the emerging bond markets. With these forecasts, an optimization process accounts for multiple iteration scenarios to create, what we believe to be, an optimal portfolio strategy. The output of the model process is intended to provide relative valuations for determining an over- or underweight of country-specific bond markets. Similarly, currencies are valued for their potential returns or to hedge currency exposure. These macro 'top-down' quantitative models are used in conjunction with our investment experience and allied to a 'bottom-up' security selection process. Sell decisions are valuation-driven based on our models and our fundamental analysis. We may also sell a security due to changes in portfolio strategy or cash flow needs.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"><b> Principal Investment Risks </b></p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;">An investment in the Fund may lose money, is not a deposit of Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. or its affiliates, is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other governmental agency, and is primarily subject to the risks briefly summarized below.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>Counter-Party Risk.</b> A Fund may incur a loss if the other party to an investment contract, such as a derivative or a repurchase or reverse repurchase agreement, fails to fulfill its contractual obligation to the Fund.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>Debt Securities Risk.</b> The issuer of a debt security may fail to pay interest or principal when due, and changes in market interest rates may reduce the value of debt securities or reduce the Fund's returns.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>Derivatives Risk.</b> The use of derivatives such as futures, options and swap agreements, can lead to losses, including those magnified by leverage, particularly when derivatives are used to enhance return rather than offset risk.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>Emerging Markets Risk.</b> Foreign investment risks are typically greater for securities in emerging markets, which can be more vulnerable to recessions, currency volatility, inflation and market failure.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>Foreign Currency Transactions Risk</b>. Foreign securities are often denominated in foreign currencies. As a result, the value of a Fund's shares is affected by changes in exchange rates.

Under normal circumstances, we invest up to 5% of the Fund's total assets in debt obligations or similar securities denominated in the local currencies of countries that have a sovereign debt rating below investment-grade. Currency is managed as a separate asset class and we may enter into foreign currency exchange contracts to gain exposure, for hedging purposes or to manage risk. We may purchase a foreign currency on a spot or forward basis in order to benefit from potential appreciation of such currency relative to the U.S. dollar or to other currencies.

The Fund's investments may be concentrated in a specific geographical region and thus, may be more adversely affected by events in that region than investments of a fund that does not have such a regional focus.</p> <p style="font-size:12;padding-top:2;padding-bottom:0;padding-left:0;"> <b>Regulatory Risk.</b> Changes in government regulations may adversely affect the value of a security.

Portfolio Turnover

Portfolio Turnover [Text Block] rr_PortfolioTurnoverTextBlock

The Fund pays transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells securities (or "turns over" its portfolio). A higher portfolio turnover rate may indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when Fund shares are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not reflected in annual fund operating expenses or in the example, affect the Fund's performance. For the period from May 31, 2012 (commencement of operations) to October 31, 2012, the Fund's portfolio turnover rate was 120% of the average value of its portfolio.

Expense Example Narrative [Text Block] rr_ExpenseExampleNarrativeTextBlock

The example below is intended to help you compare the costs of investing in the Fund with the costs of investing in other mutual funds. The example assumes a $10,000 initial investment, 5% annual total return, and that operating expenses remain the same as in the tables above. The example also assumes that the Total Annual Fund Operating Expenses After Fee Waiver shown above will only be in place for the length of the current waiver commitment. Although your actual costs may be higher or lower, based on these assumptions your costs would be:

Strategy [Heading] rr_StrategyHeading

Principal Investment Strategies

Strategy Narrative [Text Block] rr_StrategyNarrativeTextBlock

Under normal circumstances, we invest:

  • at least 80% of the Fund's net assets in debt securities issued by governments, corporate entities or supranational agencies, that are tied economically to emerging market countries and denominated in local currencies;

  • in at least six countries or supranational agencies; and

  • up to 20% of the Fund's total assets in debt securities denominated in currencies of developed markets but issued by governments or corporate entities from emerging market countries.

Emerging market countries generally are those countries defined as having an emerging or developing economy by the World Bank or its related organizations, or the United Nations or its authorities. The emerging market countries in which the Fund may invest currently include, but are not limited to, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, China, Colombia, Czech Republic, Egypt, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, Peru, the Philippines, Poland, Russia, South Africa, South Korea, Thailand, Turkey and Uruguay. We consider a security to be "tied economically to" an emerging market country if it is principally traded on the country's securities markets or if the issuer is organized or principally operates in the country, derives a majority of its income from its operations within the country or has a majority of its assets within the country.

We may invest in investment-grade and below investment-grade debt securities. While we may purchase securities of any maturity or duration, under normal circumstances, we expect the dollar-weighted average effective maturity of the Fund's portfolio to be between 3 and 10 years, and the dollar-weighted average effective duration of the Fund's portfolio to be between 2 ½ to 8 years. "Dollar-Weighted Average Effective Maturity" is a measure of the average time until the final payment of principal and interest is due on fixed income securities in the Fund's portfolio. "Dollar-Weighted Average Effective Duration" is an aggregate measure of the sensitivity of a fund's fixed income portfolio securities to changes in interest rates. As a general matter, the price of a fixed income security with a longer effective duration will fluctuate more in response to changes in interest rates than the price of a fixed income security with a shorter effective duration. The Fund is considered to be non-diversified.

Currency is managed as a separate asset class and we may enter into foreign currency exchange contracts to gain or hedge currency exposure or control risk. We may purchase a foreign currency on a spot or forward basis in order to benefit from potential appreciation of such currency relative to the U.S. dollar or to other currencies.

We use proprietary models and systems to assess and highlight areas of relative value around the world. Model-driven forecasts are created using fundamental economic inputs to generate economic forecasts on the emerging bond markets. With these forecasts, an optimization process accounts for multiple iteration scenarios to create, what we believe to be, an optimal portfolio strategy. The output of the model process is intended to provide relative valuations for determining an over- or underweight of country-specific bond markets. Similarly, currencies are valued for their potential returns or to hedge currency exposure. These macro 'top-down' quantitative models are used in conjunction with our investment experience and allied to a 'bottom-up' security selection process. Sell decisions are valuation-driven based on our models and our fundamental analysis. We may also sell a security due to changes in portfolio strategy or cash flow needs.

Principal Investment Risks

Risk Narrative [Text Block] rr_RiskNarrativeTextBlock

An investment in the Fund may lose money, is not a deposit of Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. or its affiliates, is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other governmental agency, and is primarily subject to the risks briefly summarized below.

Counter-Party Risk. A Fund may incur a loss if the other party to an investment contract, such as a derivative or a repurchase or reverse repurchase agreement, fails to fulfill its contractual obligation to the Fund.

Debt Securities Risk. The issuer of a debt security may fail to pay interest or principal when due, and changes in market interest rates may reduce the value of debt securities or reduce the Fund's returns.

Derivatives Risk. The use of derivatives such as futures, options and swap agreements, can lead to losses, including those magnified by leverage, particularly when derivatives are used to enhance return rather than offset risk.

Emerging Markets Risk. Foreign investment risks are typically greater for securities in emerging markets, which can be more vulnerable to recessions, currency volatility, inflation and market failure.

Foreign Currency Transactions Risk. Foreign securities are often denominated in foreign currencies. As a result, the value of a Fund's shares is affected by changes in exchange rates. Use of hedging techniques cannot protect against exchange rate risk perfectly. If the Fund's adviser is incorrect in its judgment of future exchange rate relationships, the Fund could be in a less advantageous position than if such a hedge had not been established.

Foreign Investment Risk. Foreign investments face the potential of heightened illiquidity, greater price volatility and adverse effects of political, regulatory, tax, currency, economic or other macroeconomic developments.

High Yield Securities Risk. High yield securities, i.e. "junk bonds," are debt securities that are rated below investment-grade, are unrated and deemed by us to be below investment-grade, or are in default at the time of purchase. These securities are considered speculative by major credit rating agencies, have a much greater risk of default or of not returning principal and tend to be more volatile and less liquid than higher-rated securities of similar maturity.

Issuer Risk. The value of a security may decline because of adverse events or circumstances that directly relate to conditions at the issuer or any entity providing it credit or liquidity support.

Leverage Risk. Leverage created by borrowing or certain investments, such as derivatives and reverse repurchase agreements, can diminish the Fund's performance and increase the volatility of the Fund's net asset value.

Liquidity Risk. A security may not be able to be sold at the time desired or without adversely affecting the price.

Management Risk. There is no guarantee of the Fund's performance or that the Fund will meet its objective. The market value of your investment may decline and you may suffer investment loss.

Market Risk. The market price of securities owned by the Fund may rapidly or unpredictably decline due to factors affecting securities markets generally or particular industries.

Non-Diversification Risk. A Fund that is considered "non-diversified" under the 1940 Act is more susceptible to financial, economic or market events impacting an issuer of portfolio securities than a "diversified" fund. Default by the issuer of a single security in the portfolio may have a greater negative effect than a similar default in a diversified portfolio.

Regional Risk. The Fund's investments may be concentrated in a specific geographical region and thus, may be more adversely affected by events in that region than investments of a fund that does not have such a regional focus.

Regulatory Risk. Changes in government regulations may adversely affect the value of a security. An insufficiently regulated industry or market might also permit inappropriate practices that adversely affect an investment.

U.S. Government Obligations Risk. U.S. Government obligations may be adversely impacted by changes in interest rates, and may not be backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. Government.

Risk Lose Money [Text] rr_RiskLoseMoney Management Risk. There is no guarantee of the Fund's performance or that the Fund will meet its objective. The market value of your investment may decline and you may suffer investment loss.
Risk Nondiversified Status [Text] rr_RiskNondiversifiedStatus Non-Diversification Risk. A Fund that is considered "non-diversified" under the 1940 Act is more susceptible to financial, economic or market events impacting an issuer of portfolio securities than a "diversified" fund. Default by the issuer of a single security in the portfolio may have a greater negative effect than a similar default in a diversified portfolio.

The Fund pays transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells securities (or "turns over" its portfolio). A higher portfolio turnover rate may indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when Fund shares are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not reflected in annual fund operating expenses or in the example, affect the Fund's performance. During the most recent fiscal year, the Fund's portfolio turnover rate was 79% of the average value of its portfolio.

Principal Investment Strategies

Strategy Narrative [Text Block] rr_StrategyNarrativeTextBlock

Under normal circumstances, we invest:

  • at least 80% of the Fund's net assets in foreign debt securities, including obligations of governments, corporate entities or supranational agencies, denominated in various currencies;

  • in at least three countries or supranational agencies;

  • up to 35% of the Fund's total assets in debt securities that are below investment grade; and

  • up to 5% of the Fund's total assets in debt obligations or similar securities denominated in the local currencies of countries that have a sovereign debt rating below investment-grade.

We invest principally in foreign debt securities denominated in various currencies, including obligations of governments, corporate entities or supranational agencies. We will invest in at least three countries or supranational agencies. We may also invest in investment-grade and below investment-grade debt securities (often called "high yield" securities or "junk bonds") of both U.S. and foreign issuers, including issuers from emerging markets. As part of our below investment-grade debt securities investment strategy, we will generally invest in securities that are rated at least B- by Standard & Poor's or B3 by Moody's, or an equivalent quality rating from another Nationally Recognized Statistical Ratings Organization, or are deemed by us to be of comparable quality. Under normal circumstances, we invest up to 5% of the Fund's total assets in debt obligations or similar securities denominated in the local currencies of countries that have a sovereign debt rating below investment-grade. Currency is managed as a separate asset class and we may enter into foreign currency exchange contracts to gain exposure, for hedging purposes or to manage risk. We may purchase a foreign currency on a spot or forward basis in order to benefit from potential appreciation of such currency relative to the U.S. dollar or to other currencies. The Fund may enter into foreign currency exchange contracts to gain or hedge currency exposure or control risk.

While we may purchase securities of any maturity or duration, under normal circumstances, we expect the Fund's dollar-weighted average effective maturity to be between 5 and 14 years, and dollar-weighted average effective duration to be between 3 1/2 and 10 years. "Dollar-Weighted Average Effective Maturity" is a measure of the average time until the final payment of principal and interest is due on fixed income securities in the Fund's portfolio. "Dollar-Weighted Average Effective Duration" is an aggregate measure of the sensitivity of a fund's fixed income portfolio securities to changes in interest rates. As a general matter, the price of a fixed income security with a longer effective duration will fluctuate more in response to changes in interest rates than the price of a fixed income security with a shorter effective duration.

We use proprietary models and systems to assess and highlight areas of relative value around the world. Model-driven forecasts are created using fundamental economic inputs to generate economic forecasts on the global bond markets. With these forecasts, an optimization process accounts for multiple iteration scenarios to create, what we believe to be, an optimal portfolio strategy. The output of the model process is intended to provide relative valuations for determining an over, or underweight of country-specific bond markets. Similarly, currencies are valued for their potential returns or to hedge currency exposure. These macro 'top-down' quantitative models are used in conjunction with our investment experience and allied to a 'bottom-up' security selection process.

A higher portfolio turnover rate may indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when Fund shares are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not reflected in annual fund operating expenses or in the example, affect the Fund's performance. For the period from May 31, 2012 (commencement of operations) to October 31, 2012, the Fund's portfolio turnover rate was 120% of the average value of its portfolio.

Principal Investment Strategies

Strategy Narrative [Text Block] rr_StrategyNarrativeTextBlock

Under normal circumstances, we invest:

  • at least 80% of the Fund's net assets in debt securities issued by governments, corporate entities or supranational agencies, that are tied economically to emerging market countries and denominated in local currencies;

  • in at least six countries or supranational agencies; and

  • up to 20% of the Fund's total assets in debt securities denominated in currencies of developed markets but issued by governments or corporate entities from emerging market countries.

Emerging market countries generally are those countries defined as having an emerging or developing economy by the World Bank or its related organizations, or the United Nations or its authorities. The emerging market countries in which the Fund may invest currently include, but are not limited to, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, China, Colombia, Czech Republic, Egypt, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, Peru, the Philippines, Poland, Russia, South Africa, South Korea, Thailand, Turkey and Uruguay. We consider a security to be "tied economically to" an emerging market country if it is principally traded on the country's securities markets or if the issuer is organized or principally operates in the country, derives a majority of its income from its operations within the country or has a majority of its assets within the country.

We may invest in investment-grade and below investment-grade debt securities. While we may purchase securities of any maturity or duration, under normal circumstances, we expect the dollar-weighted average effective maturity of the Fund's portfolio to be between 3 and 10 years, and the dollar-weighted average effective duration of the Fund's portfolio to be between 2 ½ to 8 years. "Dollar-Weighted Average Effective Maturity" is a measure of the average time until the final payment of principal and interest is due on fixed income securities in the Fund's portfolio. "Dollar-Weighted Average Effective Duration" is an aggregate measure of the sensitivity of a fund's fixed income portfolio securities to changes in interest rates. As a general matter, the price of a fixed income security with a longer effective duration will fluctuate more in response to changes in interest rates than the price of a fixed income security with a shorter effective duration. The Fund is considered to be non-diversified.

Currency is managed as a separate asset class and we may enter into foreign currency exchange contracts to gain or hedge currency exposure or control risk. We may purchase a foreign currency on a spot or forward basis in order to benefit from potential appreciation of such currency relative to the U.S. dollar or to other currencies.

We use proprietary models and systems to assess and highlight areas of relative value around the world. Model-driven forecasts are created using fundamental economic inputs to generate economic forecasts on the emerging bond markets. With these forecasts, an optimization process accounts for multiple iteration scenarios to create, what we believe to be, an optimal portfolio strategy. The output of the model process is intended to provide relative valuations for determining an over- or underweight of country-specific bond markets. Similarly, currencies are valued for their potential returns or to hedge currency exposure. These macro 'top-down' quantitative models are used in conjunction with our investment experience and allied to a 'bottom-up' security selection process. Sell decisions are valuation-driven based on our models and our fundamental analysis. We may also sell a security due to changes in portfolio strategy or cash flow needs.

Principal Investment Risks

Risk Narrative [Text Block] rr_RiskNarrativeTextBlock

An investment in the Fund may lose money, is not a deposit of Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. or its affiliates, is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other governmental agency, and is primarily subject to the risks briefly summarized below.

Counter-Party Risk. A Fund may incur a loss if the other party to an investment contract, such as a derivative or a repurchase or reverse repurchase agreement, fails to fulfill its contractual obligation to the Fund.

Debt Securities Risk. The issuer of a debt security may fail to pay interest or principal when due, and changes in market interest rates may reduce the value of debt securities or reduce the Fund's returns.

Derivatives Risk. The use of derivatives such as futures, options and swap agreements, can lead to losses, including those magnified by leverage, particularly when derivatives are used to enhance return rather than offset risk.

Emerging Markets Risk. Foreign investment risks are typically greater for securities in emerging markets, which can be more vulnerable to recessions, currency volatility, inflation and market failure.

Foreign Currency Transactions Risk. Foreign securities are often denominated in foreign currencies. As a result, the value of a Fund's shares is affected by changes in exchange rates. Use of hedging techniques cannot protect against exchange rate risk perfectly. If the Fund's adviser is incorrect in its judgment of future exchange rate relationships, the Fund could be in a less advantageous position than if such a hedge had not been established.

Foreign Investment Risk. Foreign investments face the potential of heightened illiquidity, greater price volatility and adverse effects of political, regulatory, tax, currency, economic or other macroeconomic developments.

High Yield Securities Risk. High yield securities, i.e. "junk bonds," are debt securities that are rated below investment-grade, are unrated and deemed by us to be below investment-grade, or are in default at the time of purchase. These securities are considered speculative by major credit rating agencies, have a much greater risk of default or of not returning principal and tend to be more volatile and less liquid than higher-rated securities of similar maturity.

Issuer Risk. The value of a security may decline because of adverse events or circumstances that directly relate to conditions at the issuer or any entity providing it credit or liquidity support.

Leverage Risk. Leverage created by borrowing or certain investments, such as derivatives and reverse repurchase agreements, can diminish the Fund's performance and increase the volatility of the Fund's net asset value.

Liquidity Risk. A security may not be able to be sold at the time desired or without adversely affecting the price.

Management Risk. There is no guarantee of the Fund's performance or that the Fund will meet its objective. The market value of your investment may decline and you may suffer investment loss.

Market Risk. The market price of securities owned by the Fund may rapidly or unpredictably decline due to factors affecting securities markets generally or particular industries.

Non-Diversification Risk. A Fund that is considered "non-diversified" under the 1940 Act is more susceptible to financial, economic or market events impacting an issuer of portfolio securities than a "diversified" fund. Default by the issuer of a single security in the portfolio may have a greater negative effect than a similar default in a diversified portfolio.

Regional Risk. The Fund's investments may be concentrated in a specific geographical region and thus, may be more adversely affected by events in that region than investments of a fund that does not have such a regional focus.

Regulatory Risk. Changes in government regulations may adversely affect the value of a security. An insufficiently regulated industry or market might also permit inappropriate practices that adversely affect an investment.

U.S. Government Obligations Risk. U.S. Government obligations may be adversely impacted by changes in interest rates, and may not be backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. Government.

Risk Lose Money [Text] rr_RiskLoseMoney Management Risk. There is no guarantee of the Fund's performance or that the Fund will meet its objective. The market value of your investment may decline and you may suffer investment loss.
Risk Nondiversified Status [Text] rr_RiskNondiversifiedStatus Non-Diversification Risk. A Fund that is considered "non-diversified" under the 1940 Act is more susceptible to financial, economic or market events impacting an issuer of portfolio securities than a "diversified" fund. Default by the issuer of a single security in the portfolio may have a greater negative effect than a similar default in a diversified portfolio.

Principal Investment Strategies

Strategy Narrative [Text Block] rr_StrategyNarrativeTextBlock

Under normal circumstances, we invest:

  • at least 80% of the Fund's net assets in foreign debt securities, including obligations of governments, corporate entities or supranational agencies, denominated in various currencies;

  • in at least three countries or supranational agencies;

  • up to 35% of the Fund's total assets in debt securities that are below investment grade; and

  • up to 5% of the Fund's total assets in debt obligations or similar securities denominated in the local currencies of countries that have a sovereign debt rating below investment-grade.

We invest principally in foreign debt securities denominated in various currencies, including obligations of governments, corporate entities or supranational agencies. We will invest in at least three countries or supranational agencies. We may also invest in investment-grade and below investment-grade debt securities (often called "high yield" securities or "junk bonds") of both U.S. and foreign issuers, including issuers from emerging markets. As part of our below investment-grade debt securities investment strategy, we will generally invest in securities that are rated at least B- by Standard & Poor's or B3 by Moody's, or an equivalent quality rating from another Nationally Recognized Statistical Ratings Organization, or are deemed by us to be of comparable quality. Under normal circumstances, we invest up to 5% of the Fund's total assets in debt obligations or similar securities denominated in the local currencies of countries that have a sovereign debt rating below investment-grade. Currency is managed as a separate asset class and we may enter into foreign currency exchange contracts to gain exposure, for hedging purposes or to manage risk. We may purchase a foreign currency on a spot or forward basis in order to benefit from potential appreciation of such currency relative to the U.S. dollar or to other currencies. The Fund may enter into foreign currency exchange contracts to gain or hedge currency exposure or control risk.

While we may purchase securities of any maturity or duration, under normal circumstances, we expect the Fund's dollar-weighted average effective maturity to be between 5 and 14 years, and dollar-weighted average effective duration to be between 3 1/2 and 10 years. "Dollar-Weighted Average Effective Maturity" is a measure of the average time until the final payment of principal and interest is due on fixed income securities in the Fund's portfolio. "Dollar-Weighted Average Effective Duration" is an aggregate measure of the sensitivity of a fund's fixed income portfolio securities to changes in interest rates. As a general matter, the price of a fixed income security with a longer effective duration will fluctuate more in response to changes in interest rates than the price of a fixed income security with a shorter effective duration.

We use proprietary models and systems to assess and highlight areas of relative value around the world. Model-driven forecasts are created using fundamental economic inputs to generate economic forecasts on the global bond markets. With these forecasts, an optimization process accounts for multiple iteration scenarios to create, what we believe to be, an optimal portfolio strategy. The output of the model process is intended to provide relative valuations for determining an over, or underweight of country-specific bond markets. Similarly, currencies are valued for their potential returns or to hedge currency exposure. These macro 'top-down' quantitative models are used in conjunction with our investment experience and allied to a 'bottom-up' security selection process.

Principal Investment Strategies

Strategy Narrative [Text Block] rr_StrategyNarrativeTextBlock

Under normal circumstances, we invest:

  • at least 80% of the Fund's net assets in debt securities issued by governments, corporate entities or supranational agencies, that are tied economically to emerging market countries and denominated in local currencies;

  • in at least six countries or supranational agencies; and

  • up to 20% of the Fund's total assets in debt securities denominated in currencies of developed markets but issued by governments or corporate entities from emerging market countries.

Emerging market countries generally are those countries defined as having an emerging or developing economy by the World Bank or its related organizations, or the United Nations or its authorities. The emerging market countries in which the Fund may invest currently include, but are not limited to, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, China, Colombia, Czech Republic, Egypt, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, Peru, the Philippines, Poland, Russia, South Africa, South Korea, Thailand, Turkey and Uruguay. We consider a security to be "tied economically to" an emerging market country if it is principally traded on the country's securities markets or if the issuer is organized or principally operates in the country, derives a majority of its income from its operations within the country or has a majority of its assets within the country.

We may invest in investment-grade and below investment-grade debt securities. While we may purchase securities of any maturity or duration, under normal circumstances, we expect the dollar-weighted average effective maturity of the Fund's portfolio to be between 3 and 10 years, and the dollar-weighted average effective duration of the Fund's portfolio to be between 2 ½ to 8 years. "Dollar-Weighted Average Effective Maturity" is a measure of the average time until the final payment of principal and interest is due on fixed income securities in the Fund's portfolio. "Dollar-Weighted Average Effective Duration" is an aggregate measure of the sensitivity of a fund's fixed income portfolio securities to changes in interest rates. As a general matter, the price of a fixed income security with a longer effective duration will fluctuate more in response to changes in interest rates than the price of a fixed income security with a shorter effective duration. The Fund is considered to be non-diversified.

Currency is managed as a separate asset class and we may enter into foreign currency exchange contracts to gain or hedge currency exposure or control risk. We may purchase a foreign currency on a spot or forward basis in order to benefit from potential appreciation of such currency relative to the U.S. dollar or to other currencies.

We use proprietary models and systems to assess and highlight areas of relative value around the world. Model-driven forecasts are created using fundamental economic inputs to generate economic forecasts on the emerging bond markets. With these forecasts, an optimization process accounts for multiple iteration scenarios to create, what we believe to be, an optimal portfolio strategy. The output of the model process is intended to provide relative valuations for determining an over- or underweight of country-specific bond markets. Similarly, currencies are valued for their potential returns or to hedge currency exposure. These macro 'top-down' quantitative models are used in conjunction with our investment experience and allied to a 'bottom-up' security selection process. Sell decisions are valuation-driven based on our models and our fundamental analysis. We may also sell a security due to changes in portfolio strategy or cash flow needs.

Principal Investment Risks

Risk Narrative [Text Block] rr_RiskNarrativeTextBlock

An investment in the Fund may lose money, is not a deposit of Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. or its affiliates, is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other governmental agency, and is primarily subject to the risks briefly summarized below.

Counter-Party Risk. A Fund may incur a loss if the other party to an investment contract, such as a derivative or a repurchase or reverse repurchase agreement, fails to fulfill its contractual obligation to the Fund.

Debt Securities Risk. The issuer of a debt security may fail to pay interest or principal when due, and changes in market interest rates may reduce the value of debt securities or reduce the Fund's returns.

Derivatives Risk. The use of derivatives such as futures, options and swap agreements, can lead to losses, including those magnified by leverage, particularly when derivatives are used to enhance return rather than offset risk.

Emerging Markets Risk. Foreign investment risks are typically greater for securities in emerging markets, which can be more vulnerable to recessions, currency volatility, inflation and market failure.

Foreign Currency Transactions Risk. Foreign securities are often denominated in foreign currencies. As a result, the value of a Fund's shares is affected by changes in exchange rates. Use of hedging techniques cannot protect against exchange rate risk perfectly. If the Fund's adviser is incorrect in its judgment of future exchange rate relationships, the Fund could be in a less advantageous position than if such a hedge had not been established.

Foreign Investment Risk. Foreign investments face the potential of heightened illiquidity, greater price volatility and adverse effects of political, regulatory, tax, currency, economic or other macroeconomic developments.

High Yield Securities Risk. High yield securities, i.e. "junk bonds," are debt securities that are rated below investment-grade, are unrated and deemed by us to be below investment-grade, or are in default at the time of purchase. These securities are considered speculative by major credit rating agencies, have a much greater risk of default or of not returning principal and tend to be more volatile and less liquid than higher-rated securities of similar maturity.

Issuer Risk. The value of a security may decline because of adverse events or circumstances that directly relate to conditions at the issuer or any entity providing it credit or liquidity support.

Leverage Risk. Leverage created by borrowing or certain investments, such as derivatives and reverse repurchase agreements, can diminish the Fund's performance and increase the volatility of the Fund's net asset value.

Liquidity Risk. A security may not be able to be sold at the time desired or without adversely affecting the price.

Management Risk. There is no guarantee of the Fund's performance or that the Fund will meet its objective. The market value of your investment may decline and you may suffer investment loss.

Market Risk. The market price of securities owned by the Fund may rapidly or unpredictably decline due to factors affecting securities markets generally or particular industries.

Non-Diversification Risk. A Fund that is considered "non-diversified" under the 1940 Act is more susceptible to financial, economic or market events impacting an issuer of portfolio securities than a "diversified" fund. Default by the issuer of a single security in the portfolio may have a greater negative effect than a similar default in a diversified portfolio.

Regional Risk. The Fund's investments may be concentrated in a specific geographical region and thus, may be more adversely affected by events in that region than investments of a fund that does not have such a regional focus.

Regulatory Risk. Changes in government regulations may adversely affect the value of a security. An insufficiently regulated industry or market might also permit inappropriate practices that adversely affect an investment.

U.S. Government Obligations Risk. U.S. Government obligations may be adversely impacted by changes in interest rates, and may not be backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. Government.

Portfolio Turnover [Text Block] rr_PortfolioTurnoverTextBlock

The Fund pays transaction costs, such as commissions, when it buys and sells securities (or "turns over" its portfolio). A higher portfolio turnover rate may indicate higher transaction costs and may result in higher taxes when Fund shares are held in a taxable account. These costs, which are not reflected in annual fund operating expenses or in the example, affect the Fund's performance. During the most recent fiscal year, the Fund's portfolio turnover rate was 79% of the average value of its portfolio.

Strategy [Heading] rr_StrategyHeading

Principal Investment Strategies

Strategy Narrative [Text Block] rr_StrategyNarrativeTextBlock

Under normal circumstances, we invest:

  • at least 80% of the Fund's net assets in foreign debt securities, including obligations of governments, corporate entities or supranational agencies, denominated in various currencies;

  • in at least three countries or supranational agencies;

  • up to 35% of the Fund's total assets in debt securities that are below investment grade; and

  • up to 5% of the Fund's total assets in debt obligations or similar securities denominated in the local currencies of countries that have a sovereign debt rating below investment-grade.

We invest principally in foreign debt securities denominated in various currencies, including obligations of governments, corporate entities or supranational agencies. We will invest in at least three countries or supranational agencies. We may also invest in investment-grade and below investment-grade debt securities (often called "high yield" securities or "junk bonds") of both U.S. and foreign issuers, including issuers from emerging markets. As part of our below investment-grade debt securities investment strategy, we will generally invest in securities that are rated at least B- by Standard & Poor's or B3 by Moody's, or an equivalent quality rating from another Nationally Recognized Statistical Ratings Organization, or are deemed by us to be of comparable quality. Under normal circumstances, we invest up to 5% of the Fund's total assets in debt obligations or similar securities denominated in the local currencies of countries that have a sovereign debt rating below investment-grade. Currency is managed as a separate asset class and we may enter into foreign currency exchange contracts to gain exposure, for hedging purposes or to manage risk. We may purchase a foreign currency on a spot or forward basis in order to benefit from potential appreciation of such currency relative to the U.S. dollar or to other currencies. The Fund may enter into foreign currency exchange contracts to gain or hedge currency exposure or control risk.

While we may purchase securities of any maturity or duration, under normal circumstances, we expect the Fund's dollar-weighted average effective maturity to be between 5 and 14 years, and dollar-weighted average effective duration to be between 3 1/2 and 10 years. "Dollar-Weighted Average Effective Maturity" is a measure of the average time until the final payment of principal and interest is due on fixed income securities in the Fund's portfolio. "Dollar-Weighted Average Effective Duration" is an aggregate measure of the sensitivity of a fund's fixed income portfolio securities to changes in interest rates. As a general matter, the price of a fixed income security with a longer effective duration will fluctuate more in response to changes in interest rates than the price of a fixed income security with a shorter effective duration.

We use proprietary models and systems to assess and highlight areas of relative value around the world. Model-driven forecasts are created using fundamental economic inputs to generate economic forecasts on the global bond markets. With these forecasts, an optimization process accounts for multiple iteration scenarios to create, what we believe to be, an optimal portfolio strategy. The output of the model process is intended to provide relative valuations for determining an over, or underweight of country-specific bond markets. Similarly, currencies are valued for their potential returns or to hedge currency exposure. These macro 'top-down' quantitative models are used in conjunction with our investment experience and allied to a 'bottom-up' security selection process.

Sell decisions are valuation-driven based on our models and our fundamental analysis. We may also sell a security due to changes in portfolio strategy or cash flow needs.

Risk [Heading] rr_RiskHeading

Principal Investment Risks

Risk Narrative [Text Block] rr_RiskNarrativeTextBlock

An investment in the Fund may lose money, is not a deposit of Wells Fargo Bank, N.A. or its affiliates, is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other governmental agency, and is primarily subject to the risks briefly summarized below.

Counter-Party Risk. A Fund may incur a loss if the other party to an investment contract, such as a derivative or a repurchase or reverse repurchase agreement, fails to fulfill its contractual obligation to the Fund.

Debt Securities Risk. The issuer of a debt security may fail to pay interest or principal when due, and changes in market interest rates may reduce the value of debt securities or reduce the Fund's returns.

Derivatives Risk. The use of derivatives such as futures, options and swap agreements, can lead to losses, including those magnified by leverage, particularly when derivatives are used to enhance return rather than offset risk.

Emerging Markets Risk. Foreign investment risks are typically greater for securities in emerging markets, which can be more vulnerable to recessions, currency volatility, inflation and market failure.

Foreign Currency Transactions Risk. Foreign securities are often denominated in foreign currencies. As a result, the value of a Fund's shares is affected by changes in exchange rates. Use of hedging techniques cannot protect against exchange rate risk perfectly. If the Fund's adviser is incorrect in its judgment of future exchange rate relationships, the Fund could be in a less advantageous position than if such a hedge had not been established.

Foreign Investment Risk. Foreign investments face the potential of heightened illiquidity, greater price volatility and adverse effects of political, regulatory, tax, currency, economic or other macroeconomic developments.

High Yield Securities Risk. High yield securities, i.e. "junk bonds," are debt securities that are rated below investment-grade, are unrated and deemed by us to be below investment-grade, or are in default at the time of purchase. These securities are considered speculative by major credit rating agencies, have a much greater risk of default or of not returning principal and tend to be more volatile and less liquid than higher-rated securities of similar maturity.

Issuer Risk. The value of a security may decline because of adverse events or circumstances that directly relate to conditions at the issuer or any entity providing it credit or liquidity support.

Leverage Risk. Leverage created by borrowing or certain investments, such as derivatives and reverse repurchase agreements, can diminish the Fund's performance and increase the volatility of the Fund's net asset value.

Liquidity Risk. A security may not be able to be sold at the time desired or without adversely affecting the price.

Management Risk. There is no guarantee of the Fund's performance or that the Fund will meet its objective. The market value of your investment may decline and you may suffer investment loss.

Market Risk. The market price of securities owned by the Fund may rapidly or unpredictably decline due to factors affecting securities markets generally or particular industries.

Regional Risk. The Fund's investments may be concentrated in a specific geographical region and thus, may be more adversely affected by events in that region than investments of a fund that does not have such a regional focus.

Regulatory Risk. Changes in government regulations may adversely affect the value of a security. An insufficiently regulated industry or market might also permit inappropriate practices that adversely affect an investment.

U.S. Government Obligations Risk. U.S. Government obligations may be adversely impacted by changes in interest rates, and may not be backed by the full faith and credit of the U.S. Government.
