In China and other Asian cultures, the way you pronounce the characters has been converted into the Roman alphabet, so they use that alphabet to type in the romanization of the Chinese character (called pinyin), and they are then given a screen with all the possibilities that that romanization can have. They select the right one, and voila! It doesn't take a lot of time because you can put more that one character in at a time and it will give you the phrase.

Also, Chinese smartphones have the capability for them to write the character on the screen and have suggestions pop up.

I know because I live in China and am learning Chinese. :)
