I guess "officially" the Lutheran Church uses the Hebrew Old Testament and the Greek New Testament. All pastors are trained in the languages and use them for sermon preparation and teaching. It's best to use the original languages rather than simply rely on someone elses interpretations.

There is no "official" English translation used in the Lutheran church. Some of the different church bodies have preferences that are used in their lectionaries and educational materials.

The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod uses the English Standard Version for its liturgical lectionary and much of its newer educational materials. The NIV had been used in recent years, but the synod is moving away from that version.

The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America uses the New Revised Standard Version in its lectionary and educational publications.

Other versions used include the New King James, New American Standard, and others.

The English Standard received very high praise from the LCMS's recent comparative report on Bible translations. As I recall, it's been approved for liturgical use and there's some talk of having a new ESV Lutheran Study Bible to replace the NIV version.

EDIT:
The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod uses the English Standard Version for its liturgical lectionary and much of its newer educational materials. The NIV had been used in recent years, but the synod is moving away from that version
Yeah what he said.

One reason I (we?) feel the ESV is a superior translation is that, like the NIV, it is based on updated texts (unlike KJV), christological (unlike RSV), and not gender-neutral (unlike NRSV), but unlike the NIV, it is an 'essential literal' (word-for-word) translation that leans toward 'formal equivalence,' whereas the NIV is a 'dynamic equivalent' (thought-for-thought) leaning toward 'functional equivelance' that, unfortunately, embeds the translation's interpretation of a thought into the text.
