use the macro \psTextFrame(lower left)(upper right){centered text}

Herbert

\documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{article}
\parindent=0pt

\begin{document}

\psset{framearc=0.25,framesep=5pt}
\begin{pspicture}(10,6)
\psTextFrame(0.5,0)(7.5,1){\parbox{5cm}{%
\Centering everything is centered and of a width of 5cm}}
\psTextFrame(7.5,0.2)(10.5,0.8){\tiny Zentriert}
\psTextFrame(0.5,4.1)(7.5,5.1){Zentriert}
\psTextFrame[framearc=0.25,framesep=5pt](7.5,4.3)(10.5,4.9){\tiny Zentriert}
\end{pspicture}
