    Default Do they sound OK ?

    Again, please make them more English-like and sound OK to native speakers.
    Thanks, teachers !!!

    The process of hunger eradication and poverty alleviation in Viet Nam has been internationally percieved as a successfull epitome of how rapid economic growth went alongside sustainable social development.

    Overworking - induced stress is the most common problem occurring in workplace.

    After a quick and easy win over three other competitors, he became so complacent and, hence, lost the next match.

    The new minister forgot his undertaking with voters and soon alienated his supporters.

    Her behaviour begs the question of whether or not doing work for charity stemed from her altruism or just a way to obtain publicity.

    From a backward, remote and agriarian-dominated territory, Pudong has tranformed itself into a thriving and modern area which is making a bid to reach an international scale.

    I'll have a try...

    The process of hunger eradication and poverty alleviation in Viet Nam has been internationally perceived as a successful example of how rapid economic growth goes hand in hand with (the usual cliche) sustainable social development.

    Work-induced stress is the most common problem occurring in the workplace.

    After a quick and easy win over three other competitors, he became so complacent (that) he lost the next match.

    The new minister forgot his undertaking with the voters and soon alienated his supporters.

    Her behaviour begs the question of whether her charity work stemmed from her altruism or was just a way to obtain publicity.

    From a backward, remote and agriarian-dominated territory, Pudong has tranformed itself into a thriving and modern area which is making a bid to reach an international scale.This last one is difficult, mainly because I cannot guess the meaning of 'an international scale'
