How do I import a custom dictionary from MS Word?

I’ve been using MS Word for almost 35 years (gulp) and have accumulated a very useful custom dictionary of chemistry/biochemistry terms. I’m new to Scrivener; it seems like a nice tool for a big project I’d like to start that’ll be full of chemistry and biochemistry terms. How can I move my accumulated spelling wisdom from Word to Scrivener? I’m using Word 2011 (v. 14.4) on the Mac, if that matters.

You should post this in Technical support in the Mac part of the forum.
On a Mac you can add words to your system wide dictionary when hou check spelling, and I think Scrivener uses the built in dictionary. Did you do it some other way?
