Word order and use of Rappeler

Is it also correct to say:

Elle rappelle à Alain sa sœur 

I am getting this word order in Reverso translation and Google Translate for many examples I made up with the same structure. I know Google Translate is not always reliable, but I have also seen other examples that seem to indicate the word order above is used as well as the one used in the lesson. Thank you.

Bonjour Leslie,

In this instance, the correct order, as mentioned in the lesson, is :

rappeler + person one's reminded of + à + person being reminded

Elle rappelle sa sœur à Alain

 

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée!
