Translating is a great idea if you need to target a specific country, in this case, China. However, as with anything, if it is worth doing, it is worth doing well. Hence I would not suggest using any online translation tools if you are going to be placing the results in a webpage. They do a great job for a quick translation, but the mistakes that creep in could be quite damaging to your site in the long run. It is far better to get an experienced translater to do it for you, preferably one who is familiar with website/seo requirements. As you say, it is then a simple matter of placing the text into your webpages and setting the character sets.
If you have a web-savvy translator, you could even send over the templates and get them to translate straight into the webpages. However, you need to be careful they only alter the content/text and not the formatting.
A few recent thread on thi subject are:-

However, I guess his question is not asking about how to translate a text into Chinese but how to handle Chinese text, the charset.
I think, in windows XP, you can install asian language support package. After that, your computer will be able to display or even type Chinese. when you have that, you can handle Chinese same as English text.
I guess you don't need help any more. Good luck. Chinese people are very willing to be helpful. When you have question, always post it here...
Windows XP is a great platform for multilingual computing.
