Bonjour

I don't understand this sentence:
"just some ideas that we can bounce off her" : "juste quelques idées que l'on pourra lui transmettre/lui refiler (if "bounce off is a slangy expression)
I'm really unsure :(
Thanks

    Thank you.
    But what about the register, "bounce off" is formal or informal ?
    I had never come across this verb until today.

    Thanks again

    Personally, I think it can be used in any situation.

    It is a common phrase, and often used in business chat, as well as everyday life.

    It's a very common phrase used in any situation. It is not slang at all. This might also help you.
