Input Chinese and display Chinese charactors in email, etc.


My wife wants to Input Chinese and display Chinese charactors in email, etc.

She used Twinbridge Chinese Partner v5 in her old computer, Windows 98se, now but I cannot install and make it work in Windows 2000 Pro.

Do you know of or can suggest a freeware Chinese input application to allow typing (inputting) Chinese charactors?

You may need some work-arounds or more help since many solutions are not free. See my ideas below, hope a couple help you just a little:

Writing in Chinese from XP (I would assume 2000 as well):

And I'm SURE you would get a reduced price on an upgrade since you already own a copy of the software for Win9x.
