The New International Version (NIV) is an English translation of the Protestant Bible. Biblica (formerly the International Bible Society) is the worldwide publisher and copyright holder of the NIV, and licenses commercial rights to Zondervan in the United States and to Hodder & Stoughton in the UK. Originally published in the 1970s, the NIV was updated in 1984 and 2011,[3]and has become one of the most popular and best selling modern translations.[4] A 2014 survey of Americans who read the Bible found that 19% use it.[5]
