What version of the Bible do the Polish Orthodox use? The Tysiąclatka or Wujka or some other version?

Actually, I'm interested in this question too.
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

There is no officially approved translation. These two and Biblia Warszawska (Brytyjka) are the most popular.

For those who don't know: Biblia Tysiąclecia (a.k.a. "Tysiąclatka") is a 20th century RC translation, Biblia Jakuba Wujka  (a.k.a. "Wujek") is a late 16th century RC translation, and Biblia Warszawska (a.k.a. "Brytyjka") is a 20th century Protestant translation.

There is no officially approved translation.

Actually there is one: Biblia Ekumeniczna (the Ecumenical Bible) which was translated together by Orthodox, Roman Catholics, Old Catholics and Protestants. However, it isn't used widely in our Church. As far as I know, work on the official Orthodox translation is in progress.

Officially approved by the Holy Synod?

No, but personally blessed by our metropolitans: Basil and Sava.
