It's not always obvious when someone is a non-native speaker here, and your question is written well enough that we can't assume you're non-native. However, it seems rather absurd because a native speaker would seemingly know myriad ways to phrase this in an email. Letting us know your situation helps with formulating an appropriate answer.
If you don't wish to use "cc" as per your comment on Jon Hanna's answer it means something else in your native language you can just use the verb to copy : 1. I've copied Steve in on this email because I would advise against including the word "carbon"; I've not seen it in common usage. AndyT AndyT I also often see "copy x on", where X is the other recipient rather than the message: "I've copied Jim on this. As many other people have said, however, USAites will generally feel quite comfortable with "CCing" or "cc'ing" or "cc-ing" someone.

Incorporated in answer, with thanks. It tends to be used as a verb, and abbreviated: I've CCed my manager. Or parenthetically in a sentence about whatever reason you have for saying you've done so.

In our native language "CC" is an abbreviation of "'com conhecimento' de" which means "'with the knowledge' of".

Yeah, orally it's normally CC and "carbon copy" would be rare "carbon copy" has another metaphorical use, meaning "exactly the same" that's a bit more common. I wouldn't worry too much about confusion with com conhecimento de , because context is a factor.
In English cc can also mean "cubic centimetre" as is often used with medicine doses and engine sizes, but there's rarely confusion with CC in terms of emails as the contexts either is used are so different. Davo I can't say that I like it. I never suggested it as such.

Hi AndyT, you are right, I should have clarified that in British English this is hardly found and maybe added some external references. I will add those references and additional details to my answer.
I am a British English speaker, but I work in Europe in software , and have cooperated extensively with Americans for many years. I have not previously encountered that abbreviation. It may be a logistics-specific term which is being used by associated IT teams. Hi Martin, thanks for your feedback.
