There are many online OCR input websites. For example: http://www.yibizi.com/html5/ (neat and fast, without ads, but seems only working inside China) I strongly suggest you install a client software rather than using a website because many websites are full of ads.

You can install ibus and ibus-pinyin (there's also google pinyin but I personally prefer ibus-pinyin) or scim. Scim is more the historical software, but ibus is definitely better.

The three best options IMHO are: Nciku (the pioneer, still works on a webpage). Now called Line-dict. Google Translate App, as posted above. It recently bought nciku's technology, but the imput method is not as confortable, since your writing must be really fast for the software to pick it up. Pleco: my own personal choice. It is flexible, ...

However, Autohotkey is not available for Gnu/Linux, so this would need to be reworked. A good text expansion app for Gnu/Linux is AutoKey. I made an example that can be ...
