About Us

Welcome to Russian Keys Limited! We are a privately owned company specialising in Russian language and culture courses (online and face-to-face), certified (accepted by Immigration NZ, Russian and NZ Embassies and other institutions and authorities) translation and interpreting (Russian <-> English) and general intercultural communication seminars and workshops.

We undertake standard and certified translation of documents and texts, including confidential and urgent documentation.

We provide Russian <-> English interpreting in New Zealand and Russia, and also worldwide via Skype.

We can provide specialist training for business people, private individuals and officials, from the most senior to junior levels on general topics of intercultural communication, cultural intelligence or specific courses on Russia, Russian language and culture.

We are based in Wellington, New Zealand, but we operate worldwide.

We have established links with leading Russian, and world, universities – Lomonosov Moscow State University and Saint Petersburg State University.


Dr Olga Suvorova, Director of Russian Keys Limited, has a PhD in Cultural Studies and a Specialist's Degree (Distinction) in Linguistics, Teaching and Translation/Interpreting from one of the leading international universities, Lomonosov Moscow State University. She is the immediate past Vice President of the New Zealand Society of Translators and Interpreters.


Our philosophy is that Russian is best learned and used when all skills, written and oral, are combined on the basis of a deep background knowledge of the Russian world. Thus, Russian culture is an essential part of our Russian Language and Culture Courses which are designed to develop and maintain Russian language skills (speaking, listening, writing, and reading) necessary to communicate in Russian in most everyday situations. We believe that one size does not fit all: our courses are tailored for specific clients with particular emphasis on specific vocabulary.


Our team of language experts, in which Moscow State University postgraduates are heavily represented, is familiar with the realia of the English-speaking world. We can handle a wide range of vocabulary across the full gamut of sectors, such as business, banking, medical, finance, agriculture, diplomacy, engineering, technical, environmental, sports and traditional academic.


Our clients span a spectrum from government departments, to business corporations and small businesses, and private individuals. Click here to read what our customers say about us.
