Hippocrene Concise Dictionary
if you're on the move. It's a complete dictionary in a small size, ideal for the traveller.
Buy Rough Guide Hungary.
I have never used the Rough Guide books, but have read that they include a lot of background and history, sometimes at the expense of a wider variety of info. I think that that is good, it's probably better to have someone filter for you a little bit. I also think that history and background can really help you enjoy a place.
