Are you sure? In the ABBYY Finereader 15 User Guide (PDF), pages 182 + 206 also explain it:

Using settings from earlier versions of ABBYY FineReader

ABBYY FineReader lets you import user dictionaries and program settings from files created in earlier versions of the program.

To use dictionaries created in ABBYY FineReader 10, 11, 12 or 14:

1. Click Tools > View Dictionaries....

2. In the User Dictionaries dialog box, select the language of the dictionary and click View....

3. In the Dictionary for... dialog box, click Import... and specify the path to the dictionary.

4. Select the dictionary file and click Open.

If your document contains many specialized terms

ABBYY FineReader PDF 15 checks recognized words against its internal dictionary. If your text contains too many specialized terms, abbreviations or proper names, you can improve OCR quality by adding them to a user dictionary.

1. Click Tools > View Dictionaries....

2. In the User Dictionaries dialog box, select the appropriate language and click View....

3. In the dialog box that opens, type the word you want to add and click the Add word button (or select a word you want to delete and click the Delete button).

If the dictionary already contains the word you are trying to add, a warning message will be displayed.

You can import user dictionaries created in ABBYY FineReader 9.0, 10, 11, 12 and 14:

1. Click Tools > View Dictionaries... button.

2. In the User Dictionaries dialog box, select the appropriate language and click the View....

3. In the dialog box that opens, click the Import... button and select the user dictionary you want to import (it will have the *.pmd, *.txt or *.dic extension).
I'm still back on 12, and haven't made the jump to 15 yet.

Could you take a screenshot of what your Tools menu looks like?
