    This has been cut-&-pasted from Apple:-
    With Trackpad Handwriting you can draw Simplified and Traditional Chinese characters using your finger with Magic Trackpad or portable Mac computers that support Trackpad Handwriting. You can enter Chinese characters in any application that recognizes the Chinese input method. For example, you can write documents in Text Edit, search the web using Safari, or compose an email message using Mail by drawing the characters with your finger.

    Note: If you're using a Magic Trackpad with Trackpad Handwriting, make sure you've installed the Magic Trackpad and Multi-Touch Trackpad Update 1.0, which requires Mac OS X v10.6.4.

    Enable the Simplified or Traditional Chinese character input method

    Choose System Preferences from the Apple () menu.
    Choose Language & Text from the View menu.
    Select the Input Sources tab.
    Enable the checkboxes for Pinyin, Wubi Xing, or Wubi Hua under Chinese - Simplified, or Cangjie, Dayi Pro, Jianyi, Pinyin, or Zhuyin under Chinese - Traditional.
    You may find it helpful to enable the "Show Input menu in menu bar" option to place an icon in the menu bar; use this menu to change Input Methods without opening System Preferences. If you do not want Trackpad Handwriting to appear in the input menu, disable this option.
