    traditional or scientific texts with many rare ideographs, because it's
    difficult to create an exhaustive morphological analysis with Chinese,

    This product does no morphological analysis but uses a hidden Markov Model.
    Did you try it ? (I just checked with gave me Chinese, Big-5).

    Obviously the model is stochastic, but it can be fine-tuned by supplying a
    larger (domain specific if needed) tagged corpus.
    An improved version is used by Netscape (at least this was my impression
    when I left Alis).
