BUDAPEST, March 25 (Xinhua) -- The Hungarian government has decided to fund the compilation of Hungarian-Chinese and Chinese-Hungarian dictionaries to facilitate Chinese language learning, said the Confucius Institute at Hungary's Eotvos Lorand University of Sciences (ELTE) Tuesday.

The dictionaries will be compiled by ELTE Confucius Institute and ELTE Department of Chinese language, and the project will start in April, Imre Hamar, chief of ELTE Confucius Institute, told a press conference here.

"We have to finish the entire work in three years, and I think this is a very meaningful task," he said.

Imre said that he and another sinologist Huba Bartos will serve as editors-in-chief of the medium-sized dictionaries with some 50,000 entries.

Currently, "The Hungarian-Chinese Dictionary" and "The Chinese-Hungarian dictionary", both of which have no more than 12,000 entries, are on sale at bookstores in Hungary.
