    I'm afraid the only phrase that comes to mind is

    The Little Translator’s chest swelled with pride.

    but this doesn't take into account the amount you wanted to stress,namely just a little.
    I think one would have to add this extra piece of information to the next sentence.
    Quite full of himself,..

    maybe.
