I'm new to Linux and I am looking for a way to install input methods for Traditional Chinese (Similar to "Microsoft New Phonetic IME 2002a" in Windows, which uses a standard US keyboard and PinYin input).

Right now I also have Arabic, Russian, Spanish and Turkish installed, and all of them seem to work except for the Traditional Chinese. I can choose the keyboard, but when I input letters it comes out in Latin letters, not Chinese characters. I downloaded scim, but they don't have the system that I've gotten used to in Windows. Moreover, I'd like to know if there's a way I can install the Traditional Chinese IME without needing a separate program.

Thank you.
