Chinese Language Features in
Apple Mac OS
I'm often asked why I don't offer more Chinese Mac support here, especially since I once worked for Apple in China, I have everyone else in my family on Macs, and I've been involved with IMUG (the International Multilingual User Group formerly known as Macintosh) since forever and a day.
The easy, more-stylish-and-black-turtleneck-than-thou answer would be that "Macs don't need as much support". Well, maybe. But actually it's because there has been excellent English-language help out there for many years:
I do offer free Pinyin macros that work in all versions of Office for Mac except 2008 (because Office for Mac 2008 only supported AppleScript) and in all versions of OpenOffice/LibreOffice.
I'm also often asked if it is possible to produce Pinyin with tone marks directy from the Mac keyboard, and yes you can do that. Here's a random but very good article about that topic, on someone else's blog:
OK? I do try to help with Mac topics if I can. Please take a look at those other resources, and then contact me if you still need help.
