The Man Booker International Prize is an international award for authors who create a piece of writing that can be widely available in English.

The award is a fairly new accolade for someone to win and in 2016 the prize became a translation prize that would be awarded annually for a single work of fiction translated into English.

The award was handed out every other year, however, since 2015 it was decided that it would be presented per year to a worthy winner.

The prize money, which consists of £50,000 is split equally between author and translator, therefore highlighting the importance of the translator and encourage more people to get involved in publishing their work in English.

There is a judging panel of five members.

The 2018 longlist:

• Laurent Binet (France), Sam Taylor, The 7th Function of Language (Harvill Secker)

The book was chosen from a shortlist that included ‘Compass’, ‘The Unseen’, ‘Mirror, Shoulder, Signal’, ‘Judas’ and ‘Fever Dream’.
