I personnaly recommend you Google Pinyin. It's the program made by google, it's all in chinese install/options etc but his integration inside the programs is much better I find, and the best thing is you can setup a key other than SHIFT to swtich between chinese and english input, was quiet a problem for me before I used google pinyin caus many of my game keybindings require SHIFT as a modifier and sometimes weird things woud occur, like keys not responding, stuff like that.
BTW if you could change the Title of the topic as :
