我觉得翻译为"略知一二"没有问题:

例如: 

A:电视坏了 My televison is broken
B:我来帮你修 Let me help you fix it
A:你行吗?别修不好,修坏了~!Don't try to do that. You might make things worse.
B:我向你保证,我对修电视可是略知一二的.I assure you I know a thing or two about fixing Television.


这里是"保守"(understate)的说自己很在行某件事情.It all depends on context.

补充

(1)知道很多
Jane, please. He does know a thing or two about plumbing. Let him do his job. (他很熟悉,)
Jane, please. He does know something about plumbing. Let him do his job.(他还是懂些的,)


(2)谦虚,没吹牛
1) Yes sir, I know a thing or two about the history of Rome.(是的阁下,对这方面,鄙人略知晓一二)
(3)别烦我了
2) Jason, I do know a thing or two about gardening. (这方面我还是比较懂的,)

注意:都用到了do/does来强调(除了谦虚的那个外)

第三人称
---------谦虚
Modest 3rd --> Yes Dr. He knows a thing or two about hygiene. (我推荐他,因为他这方面很在行)

第二人称:
Strong 2nd --> You do know a thing or two about coaching. Two possible interpretations:

1)The speaker realizes that the listener is far more knowledgeable than he/she had thought.你比我知道的多的多 ,,"哇塞,看来你这方面知道的很多啊"
2)The speaker is encouraging the listener. 'You know more than you think you do.' Additional context would determine which interpretation is correct.鼓励"这方面,你知道的这么多,"(担心什么),)

bottom line:
(1) context
(2)the use of auxiliary verb )
(3)something could be interpreted in the same way.


Hope it helps:)
