There shouldn't be make sure you have the exact same fonts on both machines. Is there a reason you can't use the same version? Try resetting the Preferences on both quit Word, open Terminal and paste this line then hit return:

rm ~/Library/Preferences/com.microsoft.word.plist

Also try trashing the normal templates on both:
