I was wondering what the spanish word for to complement in the context of : "He complemented her by saying she is pretty."
I know most must translators and teachers will tell you the word is complementar, but I am not entirely sure. What do you guys think?

    Wouldn't it be "compliment" in English?

    Y en español sería "La hizo un cumplido al decirle que era guapa".
