    let transfer to you to that person

    Hello,

    You're a Servicedesk Agent and a user calls and is looking for someone. You say, let me transfer to you to that person.

    Is the word transfer correct in the sentence above? Or should there be another word that's more correct to use?

    Many thanks in advance.

    "Transfer" is correct.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Can we use another word aside from transfer?

    'Let me put you through to . . .'

    "Transfer" is correct, but you have an extra "to." Try "let me transfer you to that person."

    Another option is a simple "I'll connect you."
