The Today's Chinese Version (TCV) (Traditional characters 現代中文譯本) is a recent translation of the Bible into modern Chinese by the United Bible Societies. The New Testament was first published in 1975, and the entire Bible was published in 1979; the Bible uses simple, easy to read Chinese.


John 3:16 神那么爱世人,甚至赐下他的独子,要使所有信他的人不至灭亡,反得永恒的生命。

TCV is published in two different versions to accommodate the different translations used by Protestants and Catholics. However, the Catholic version is virtually identical to the Protestant version, except for the translations of "Lord", "God", and "Holy Spirit", even though almost all proper names are traditionally transliterated differently.[1]

In mainland China the TCV is published in simplified Chinese characters by the state-owned Amity Foundation (爱德基金会) in Nanjing, although the Today's Chinese Version is produced and distributed in fewer formats than the Amity Foundation's main version, the Chinese Union Version.
