|Writing in English is much
different than writing in Thai -- it's another world. I can read Thai
and often work with Thai staff who are assigned to translate such topics

One vital factor to remember when writing in English is to be sure to provide: "who, what, where, when, why and how". Also, be sure to be specific, i.e., is it "shareholder" or "shareholders"? If an event happened already, explain when it occurred. If something will happen in the future, tell when it will occur.While you are here, the links on the left will take you to some interesting sites concerning tips on writing, English grammar, and some practice tests to judge your skill.
