A few more details would be good.

What type of transformer (for example E-core, toroidal), whether they have magnetic shielding, which way they are oriented relative to each other, size /VA rating, how much isolation they need (how important or unimportant it is to avoid interactions).

The generic answer is leave as much room between them as you can in the chassis, while still keeping them away from any (lower level) signals.
