A lot of people (we are talking of billions) can read Chinese, this way you expose yourself (or the project you are doing or the client you are working for) to either critics (you could inadvertedly write something obscene or defamatory) or to public scorn or however great hilarity.
It is a known case with tatoos, for which sometime senseless ideograms are used, and when the poor guy/gal goes to a beach, he/she finds often a few people laughing.
These may interest you:
If I were you I would write down a senceful caption for the image in English (as simple as possible) then input it in such services as Google Translate or similar, then submit the Chinese result again in the translation to English (to check the sense remains the same and - if needed slightly change the original and loop until the bi-directional translation makes sense).

Start the character map tool of Windows and copy and paste it to Word.
This will work if the OP has the right fonts installed. In Windows 7 I never had to do anything, but when I had XP I would need to install certain things.
To make it easier, if OP can view the chinese characters on the following page without seeing those squares or ???
Then Charmap will work out.
