Problem with Passolo and MS Word 2016 Spell checker

Using Passolo 2016 Translator Edition I have been able to use MS Word 2010 Spell checker for spell checking translations in English-Finnish.

However, updating my Office (and Word) to the new 2016 version I get this error message:

ERROR - MS Word Spellchecker: No dictionary for this language.

The Passolo information indicates that even MSWord spell checker old versions (until Office 2000) will be compatible with Passolo. But there is no indication about compatibility with Word 2016. Is there some problem with using the new MSWord 2016 spell checking or something extra to be done? There is no other spell checker available for the Finnish language and the old Word XP versions are no more supported by Microsoft.
