zao mi je/izvinjavam se/oprosti(te)


Explanation:
Doslovan prijevod bi bio "zao mi je", medjutim to nije toliko jak izraz u bosanskom kao sto je u engleskom.

If someone wants to apologize for something u tom slucaju ce se upotrijebiti izrazi:
"izvinjavam se",
"izvini" ili "oprosti" (singular)
"izvinite" ili "oprostite" (plural or more formal to a person).

Pozdrav!
