 Wubi method - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
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.
Muscular memory will make sure that frequent typers using this method don't have to think about how the characters are actually constructed, just as the vast majority of English typists don't actually think very much about the spelling of words when they write.
As Wubi components are typed in the order that they would need to be written were one writing by hand, the 辶 and 廴 components are typically typed last.

 Chinese input methods for computers - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A variety of keyboard input method editors or IMEs have been designed to allow the input of Chinese characters using standard keyboards.
In addition, the methods which require the user to select a character from a menu generally have sophisticated methods for guessing which characters the user intends based on context.
As with even the most advanced English language systems, all these methods suffer from high error rates, though the error rates are an acceptable tradeoff to many users.

 Chinese input methods for computer
Keyboard input methods can be classified in 3 main types: by encoding, by pronunciation, and by structure of the characters.
Different people are most comfortable with different methods and so there is no likelihood of a "standard" method evolving.
Other means of inputting Chinese characters are note widely used but include stylus and tablet, with hand-writing recognition software, as the most common alternative, and then OCR optical character recognition (OCR) and voice recognition.

 [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.
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.
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.

 How to Read and Type Chinese Characters on Your Computer and Chinese Character Input Methods
Wubi Hua is one of the easiest to learn methods, but it tends to be vague (a Wubi Hua code will normally match tens or hundreds of characters), and each character has a unique code (thus, characters whose stroke order are frequently transposed due to a person's writing style cannot easily be found).
The Four corner method is a method of encoding Chinese characters using four numerical digits per character (in some situations, an additional digit is used).
It began as a method of indexing Chinese characters in dictionaries, and was popular before the wide spread use of pinyin.

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 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.
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 best Pinyin input methods can guess what you mean to say according to the context and by suggesting the most commonly used characters first.
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 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).
