Default Transferring keyboard shortcuts

I'm sure this is one of those easy-when-you-know-how things, but:
I have an office computer and a studio computer, both running identical versions of Windows 7 Ultimate and identical versions of Microsoft Office. Except: the office computer has been used more often than the studio computer recently, and I've built up a number of keyboard shortcuts within MS Office ( being more of a keyboard-shortcut-user than a mouse user ). Is there a simple way to transfer these shortcuts to the other computer, for example, a file or files that can be copied from one machine to the other relatively easily?
Any help gratefully accepted.

Thank you.

This is a bit of "free thinking" advice rather than a guaranteed solution and people might need to correct me here, but the shortcuts probably live in a couple of different spots. If they are shortcuts to styles, they'll probably be part of your Normal template, so copying the Normal template from one to the other would bring those over (along with anything else that lives there, such as colour palettes). Then for interface shortcuts, macro shortcuts etc they could be part of your Word customisations, so "File > Options > Customise ribbon > Import/Export > Export all customisations" will export all those (but also any other preference changes you've made, ribbon customisations, Quick access toolbar changes etc). You can then import that file.
