For inputting Chinese on OS X, the best system hands-down is QIM (you at the back - stop sniggering). It costs cash-money, but if you type Chinese on a regular basis it's well worth it, I feel. It's very well put together and has loads of useful features. There's lots of information about and discussion of using Chinese on a Mac at Yale University's Chinesemac site.

:lol: Erhm, but being mature and ready readers of pinyin we recognise it as "chim", right?

Excellent site Taffy. Nice and uncluttered, and the large font is good for an old drunk like me.

I'm sure your wife is happy that you have found a new internet-related hobby. :twisted:

You mean she gets to watch her Korean soaps in silence without me constantly criticising the appalling acting? She's thrilled, believe me. :lol:

Hi, it seems to have been a long time since anyone posted here. About time to get it going again. I've been learning Taiwanese in private lessons at Maryknoll's in Taipei since April 2009 and I'm interested in exchange with other enthusiasts.
Cheers and Tai7 ke1 ka1 iu5!
