Do you have any links you could post on existing technologies or at least the structure of the alphabet?
I'd been curious about this but AFAIK RIM's opinion is you can just do it all with localized resource bundles.
I'd always considered the tractable alphabet to be an important step in information processing technology, I'd be curious to see what you can do with a much larger one or if it can be reorganized some way.

what I know is that some people already develop some chinese input method which people can use it for fasting input for many kinds of mobile os.
and I also know how to convert english character into chinese character.
I am not so familiar with RIM's api,so I just want to know which api should I use for this proj.

Unless RIM happens to have a canned API that does exactly what you need, and based on some questions here regarding fonts it doesn't seem likely, you may get a more helpful response if you can provide some remedial material on your objectives, stated as generally as possible, some links to thinks that almost work or meaningful negative
results that nothing is available etc.
With fonts anyway, for example, I have scripts to generate bitmaps and some code for algorithmic drawing that
may be of help. If you can identify a source of character images and have a font format, it may be quite trivial
to write a code generator with a bash script. If you absolutely need a canned solution of course this won't help.
As of the most recent JDE that i have on my machine, these are the only rim classes that mention "chinese"
$ grep -il chinese *.txt
$ grep -il "complex input" *.txt
I am reminded of the importance of a short alphabet for data manipulation
