How to change dictionary from American English to British English in Office 365?

I’m working on a project for a company London, so I’d like to make sure to use British spellings. Is there a way to change the autocorrect dictionary from American English to British English?
Login to Office 365. Go to Setting > Office 365 setting > Language and select English (United Kingdom).

If you downloaded the office 2013 or 2016 apps locally and want to switch the dictionary in there follow instructions below.
You'll need to first download and install the dictionary from the Apps for Office in the Add-ins section. See link for instructions https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Install-a-dictionary-77be8dd8-23a0-4e8b-a321-a6f40c9610a5
then switch the default dictionary also under the Add-ins section https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Change-the-dictionary-3d0fd08d-2305-45ab-b7c8-2d8368715fe2
