Explanation:
1. get someone who knows Chinese( better a native speaker) and let her/him read and write down that for you.

2. Take a photo of the characters on your shirt and send a translator( I can be of help.) on this website to tell you the meaning and pronunciation. ( I don't hope your that scanner has Chinese OCR which will let PC recognize Chinese characters.

3. Go to learn Chinese now, but it will take your precious time before you can read it.

Take a photo of the shirt and then scan it


Explanation:
The easiest thing to do would be to take a photo of your shirt and then scan it. Because you will have the option fo saving it as a Bitmap (.bmp) on Microsoft Paint, or as a JPEG anyone you send it to will be able to read it without any special software. And anyone with a knowledge of Chinese will be able to translate it for you.

Try NJStar Chinese Word Processor which can be installed onto non-Chinese operating system


Explanation:
An URL to download a trial version (30 days only) is
http://www.njstar.com/

This will work is you know how to type in Chinese. By the way, if you're using AOL, don't bother to try this solution because your machine will crash when lanching both AOL and NJStar Chinese WP at the same time.

Or, you can try to "draw" the characters and fax it to any of the Proz person. ^__^
