Biblica Worldwide has translated the Bible into over 100 languages and is the translation sponsor and publisher of the New International Version® (NIV) Bible, the top-selling translation. The company recently made the decision to narrow its publishing program solely to the Bible, which led to the agreement with IVP, the nonprofit publishing arm of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship/USA, a campus ministry founded in 1947 that now publishes a range of ministry resources, trade books, and scholarly titles.
