I have a client, actually a friend of a client, who I am doing a "freebie / giveaway" shirt design for on my Brother GT-541 direct-to-garmment printer...Among other things on the shirt, I need to put "Beijing" but in Chinese characters!! Some have suggested that I buy it at some stock image place, but I do not want to get into buying it in this situation, as , well, it's a feebie shirt anyways and as we all know, in business, buying little things and adding them up adds up to big $$....so can anyone tell me where I can find a printable (bitmap etc, not a jpeg) image of "Beijing" in Chinese? (or maybe someone has one and can forward me, etc etc...)
Thanks for any advice.....

Dictionary.com has a translation feature. when i translate "beijing" to "traditional chinese" I get these characters: 北京

perhaps you can copy and paste them, i don't know how the fonts and such work with this type of thing, or how acurate the symbols are, but, hope it helps.

The symbol that Derek posted is dead on..all you need to do is copy paste into a jpg program...save as jpg and then import into Corel...vectorize it...and presto you have a vectorized image to use as you wish...

You can go to Control Panel > Regional and Language Options, select Languages tab and install "install files for East Asian Languages". After installation, on the same tab, click on "details". A window will pop up. Click on "Add" to add "Chinese (PRC)", press OK.

Now you have Chinese(PRC) in your language selection. Alt+Shift to switch between languages. Switch to Chinese(PRC) and you can start typing "bei jing" 北京 in your text box (use -/+ to select pages). Hope this help.
