MS Global IME (Input Method Editor) enables you to view and input Chinese characters.

Google Chinese Input Method (谷歌拼音输入法)
This allows you to input Chinese characters not only by using pinyin but also by using strokes if you do not know how a character is pronounced. 使用谷歌拼音提供的笔划输入功能的方法为：先按"u"进入笔划输入模式，然后用使用代码h（横）,s（竖）,p（撇）,n（捺）,z（折）,d（点）依次输入该字的各个笔划。其中，n和d是相同的。例如，您希望输入"火"，则可以按下u，再依次按下"dppn" or “nppn”。有时字在没有输入完笔画时就能出现，比如，”锻”按下”udppdps”时，就出现了。问题是有些笔画顺序不够规范；完全按笔画顺序规范，一些字并不出现。
