Your office pick up the dictionary from windows system language as default.
Check your language settings and confirm if its set to English US.

 Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Region and Language and then Change the display language
2. Switch the display language in the Choose a display language dropdown menu.
3. Click OK
4. Log off or restart for the changes to take effect (This will affect only the user profile under which you are currently logged on).
