LubyII. Taiwan Echo recommends a non-trivial use of Google translate as a way for Chinese input:
You encouraged people to write Hanji, but you did not show how to do this.
For instance, one can hand write Hanji by using a pad made by Pen-power. But better yet, one can use i-Pad to write Hanji with your own finger.
中文打字 is actually very easy, because it is "pinyin", it follows the sound of English alphabets. For example, typing "taiwan" gives you 台灣，"keshi" gives you 可是, "buyao" gives you 不要, etc.III. Sean recommends 注音輸入法:
So anyone familiar with the English keyboard can easily pick that up.
If you r interested and have time for some practice, take 5~10 minutes to visit:
Turn the left panel to Chinese and check the box [ ] 允許以拼字方式輸入
and you can start typing. Don't even have to install anything.
我以前以注音輸入時也是不習慣，Leave a comment if you have other recommendations.
