  • As far as I can remember, I haven't ever heard "if I don't say so myself". The expression currently used is "If I do say so myself" (positive form).
    According to the context it could be "wenn ich das sagen darf" ("si je peux me permettre" in French).
    If I do say so myself your wine is not drinkable.
    It could also be "so zu sagen" ("pour ainsi dire")
    If I do say so myself your wine is drinkable.
  • Thank you very much. 
    That put me in the right direction.
