Translation - English Yellow Fever
Yellow fever is a viral disease resulting in an epidemic in Africa and America. The “yellow” in the name refers to the yellow skin or the jaundice which is common among the infected, together with high fever, abnormally low heart rate, muscles and back pain, headache, chills, and loss of appetite. The second phase of toxic includes bleeding in the mouth, the nose, the eyes, and the stomach which trigger vomiting, rectal bleeding, renal failure, albuminuria and anuria. Half of the patients suffering during the sepsis phase die within 10 – 14 days, while the other half survive with the organs remain intact.
Yellow fever is transmitted through mosquitoes. Without specific anti-viral drug for yellow fever, supportive and symptomatic treatment is the only focused method. The treatment includes
• providing extra oxygen to some patients;
• maintaining the normal blood pressure;
• giving a blood transfusion; and
• treating with hemodialysis for patients with renal failure.

Source text - English Golden Week: A Japanese Holiday That’s Best To Avoid
Who doesn’t like holidays? They’re a great opportunity to take a break and get away from daily routines like work and school. In addition to the Obon holiday in summer and the New Year’s holiday in winter, Japan has another holiday that is eagerly awaited by many: the Golden Week that falls in the spring.
What is Golden Week?
Golden Week is a series of national holidays in Japan starting from 29 April to 5 May. Four national holidays fall during this week:
1. 29 April is celebrated as Showa Day, which is the birthday of the late Emperor Showa.
2. 3 May is Constitution Memorial Day.
3. 4 May is celebrated as Greenery Day. Greenery Day was previously celebrated on 29 April (1989-2006). However, in 2007 it was moved to 4 May and 29 April is now celebrated as Showa Day.
4. 5 May is celebrated as Children's Day (Kodomo no Hi) or otherwise known as Tango no Sekku.
Japanese people (particularly employees) really look forward to Golden Week because they can get a full week’s holiday (it can even stretch to 10 days, as is the case for 2019!). This means a longer period to relax and recharge, with the hope of returning to work with new enthusiasm.
English to Thai: The Bank of Thailand Offering Assessment of the Economy General field: Bus/Financial
Source text - English The Bank of Thailand (BOT) offered its most optimistic assessment of the economy in nine years at its policy meeting on Thursday and described recent weakness in inflation as temporary, signalling confidence a sustained recovery will help achieve its ambitious price target. Several economists agreed with BOT that such temporary weakness in inflation is likely a buoyant signal. However, some of them expressed some concern that the economy in this quarter expanded at a growth rate of 2.1 per cent, consistently lower than expected in the past 3 quarters, owing to marginal domestic demands and declined exports.
