 Wubi method - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Wubi method is based on the structure of characters rather than their pronunciation, making it possible to input unfamiliar characters, as well as not being too closely linked to any particular Chinese dialect.
Wubi does not position its components arbitrarily: there are far too many of them, and it is only with the introduction of a logical methodology that the system becomes easy to learn.
Wubi, short for Wubizixing (五笔字型 pinyin wǔ bǐ zì xíng), is an input method for writing Simplified Chinese text on a computer.

 [SCIM] SCIM and Wubi
Wubi put similar parts of a character as a group (if I remember correctly, there are five groups, each group has five keys.
To keep the same Wubi layout, we need to group the keys as something like: ',.py fgcrl aoeui etc. However in SCIM punctuation symbols are treated differently than characters.
Since the parts represented by a Wubi key actually has nothing to do with the actually english character on it, it makes more sense to keep the keys in the same group together, regardless the actually english keyboard layout.

 Chapter 1: Introduction
For anyone familiar with the complexity of Chinese characters or the speed limitations of the Pinyin input method, Wubi is clearly worth the work.
The representative root is the root which is most similar to the other roots on its key, and therefore learning the representative roots simplifies memorization of the complex Wubi keyboard, shown on Diagram 3.
Unfortunately, among these methods an inverse relationship exists between the amount of time necessary to master the method and the efficiency of the method.

The Wubi method looks like it might be the most efficient one, but the Five Stroke method hasn't been too hard to pick up for me. Both of these come with OS X, fortunately.
LarimdaME, there are actually several different methods of inputting Chinese; the most common one for Westerners is based on the Pinyin of each character, but there are a bunch of other methods, based on anything from a character's strokes to its radicals.
The Five Stroke method only uses five (or, in OS X's case, six) keys on the number pad, one for each type of stroke: 1 for rightward, 2 for downward, 3 for down-left, 4 for dot or down-right, and 5 for anything else, more or less.

 What does a Chinese keyboard look like? By Daniel Engber
The Taiwanese also use an input method called Cangjie, which works sort of like Wubi but lets you type out the full set of traditional Chinese characters (rather than the simplified set used in the PRC).
Some input methods let you set arbitrary shortcuts: If you found yourself typing out the Chinese word for blog—"bu-luo-ge"—over and over again, you could assign it to a simpler letter combination, like "b-l-g." Even with the fancy software, though, typing in Pinyin can be a drag.
The best Pinyin input methods can guess what you mean to say according to the context and by suggesting the most commonly used characters first.

(It is essential to reduce the amount of labor required to enter text, and there are various ways of doing so, each giving rise to a different input method.) For example, a common method of inputting Chinese characters is to use Roman spellings (Zhuyin) or the Wubi method (mainland China).
One is the }{\i\fs24 n}{\fs24 -gram method [Cavnar et al.], which breaks the source text into sequences of }{\i\fs24 n}{\fs24 letters and compares them using statistical inference with known }{\i\fs24 n}{\fs24 -gram frequencies in a large set of languages.

For me, the only method I know how to use is pinyin and it's easy because all I have to do is type it in and then look for a character that looks right instead of knowing the character off the top of my head.
