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

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.
