This is an extremely good site for converting Chinese characters to Pinyin. It is probably my favourite of this list. Once you paste Chinese character(s) in, it will convert it to Pinyin with numbers and Pinyin with tone marks. It will also give you back the characters that you pasted. If you paste traditional characters, it will also convert those to simplified characters, and show the traditional and simplified next to each other.

Converts from Chinese characters to a choice of 2 different types of Pinyin. You can choose to convert from Chinese characters to tone number Pinyin or from Chinese characters to tone mark Pinyin. Supports both traditional and simplified characters. For example you can choose to convert the characters 今年 which mean this year into tone numbers which are jin1 nian2 and to tone marks which are jīn nián. It will also put the Pinyin in colours, to help distingish between tones. Tone 1 is coloured red, tone 2 is coloured yellow, tone 3 is coloured green, and tone 4 is coloured blue.
