Two sentences:

1. I hope we're not putting you to too much trouble.
2. I hope we're not putting too much trouble to you.

Which is the correct sentence? Thank you very much.

The correct sentence is

I hope we're not putting too much trouble on you.

I'm sorry xiphiasatsi - no one ever says "I hope we're not putting too much trouble on you". Any native English speaker would instinctively say "I hope we're not putting you to too much trouble".
