お世辞って英語でなんて言うの?

日本にはお世辞をいう文化があると思います。あまり思っていなくても相手を褒めることで、その場の空気を悪くしないようにしようという配慮です。

Supportive is between friends, Flattery is for the purpose of inflating another's ego to appear nice. Flatterers or supporters who espouse an opposite opinion in private are called "Two faced"
"Supportive"は 友人同士が「支え合い、励まし合う」、"Flattery"は「へつらうこと」で相手のエゴを膨らませます。陰で真逆の意見を支持する"Flatterers"(お世辞を言う人)または"Supporters"(サポーター)のことを "Two-faced"(二重人格)と言います。

When someone compliments you about something, then it is known as 'flattery' Flattery may either be from the heart (honest) or, it may just be said for politeness. Making appreciative, complimentary and even cliche comments in general may be described in general as, 'polite niceties'.
誰かに褒められることを"flattery"と言います。"Flattery"は本音かもしれないし、社交辞令かもしれません。褒め言葉や当たり障りのないコメントのことを"Polite niceties"(お世辞)と言います。

  • to keep from hurting one's feelings

  • to prevent from offending the person

Unfortunately, we do not seem to have an exact, one word for this situation in English. Many people say things just to be nice, even if their compliments are not how they truly feel. In this case, they are 'trying to keep from hurting someone's feelings'. The phrase 'keep from' means to prevent. The phrase 'hurt someone's feelings' means to offend or upset someone from what was said or done. Therefore, people in your country often say nice things to keep from hurting others' feelings.
残念ながら、この状況を一言で表す言葉は英語にはないと思います。

心から感じていることでなくても相手を傷つけないように、優しい言葉をかける人は多いです。これは、'trying to keep from hurting someone's feelings'(人を傷つけないようにしている)と表せます。

'keep from' は「防ぐ」という意味です。
'hurt someone's feelings' は「〔言葉や行動によって〕(人)の感情を傷つける」という意味です。

ですから、あなたの国では、'to keep from hurting others' feelings'(人の気持ちを傷つけないように)優しい言葉をかける人が多いということです。

When someone has 'good manners' it means that their attitude is friendly and good natured towards people.
'Being polite' is the opposite of being rude.
"Good manners"な人は、フレンドリーな態度で親切に対応する人のことです。

"Being polite"(礼儀正しくする)は「失礼な態度を取る」の反対の意味です。

The two words you see above are the words we use to describe when a person gives a compliment, normally insincerely. The second word is actually a term. This term is appropriate for informal settings, like talking with close friends or family member. The first word, flatter, is appropriate for formal settings.
上記二つの語句は、普通不誠実に人を褒めることを表します。

二つ目の例は慣用句です。この表現は家族や親しい友人と話すときなどインフォーマルな場面に適しています。

一つ目の "flatter" は、フォーマルな場面に適しています。

When you want to make someone feel better about themselves by the way you say things is called 'flattery' like your hair looks good today this would flatter someone and make them feel good
Compliments are the same type of thing as flattery by making nice compliments about their clothes.hair/appearance to make them feel good
Politeness is just being nice and saying nice things to someone
人を褒めて良い気持ちにさせようとすることは、'flattery'(お世辞)といいます。

'compliment'は'flattery'と同じタイプのものです。'compliment'は「〔服や髪型、見た目についての〕褒め言葉」という意味です。

'politeness'は礼儀正しく、相手の喜ぶことを言うことをいいます。

  • Compliment

Usually, if someone is complimenting you or praising you, it may be due to them acting polite. It is common courtesy to be polite rather than rude, even if it means saying something that is considered polite that may not be completely the truth.

"You look really good tonight"
たいてい、人は丁寧な振る舞いとして人を褒めます。

丁寧に振る舞うことは礼儀です、仮にそれが事実でないことを言うことであっても、です。

"You look really good tonight"
(今日はすごくすてきです)
