Hi. I'm not sure how to input chinese character but this site will show you the traditional form of the character (just click the link) ... oding=text

If you want to translate a lot of the simplified characters just learn the radicals or "bu shou" of the simplified character and you can look them up online.

In Simplified Chinese = 灿
In Traditional Chinese = 燦

That's my grandfather's name as well :)
