Almost, but not quite accurate. Let's quote the Mormon's 8th article of faith correctly:
We believe the Bible to be the word of God as far as it is translated correctly; we also believe the Book of Mormon to be the word of God
Keep in mind that there are literally hundreds of different translations of the Bible. Not all are correct. Some are downright corrupt. That is what that "translated correctly" phrase is referring to. Many versions of the Bible are acceptable, but the KJV is the official "Mormon Bible" in English. In German the official version is the Luther Bible. Indeed, the Book of Mormon testifies of the Bible and that it contains the Word of God.
If you believe all Bible translations are correct and "true" merely by the fact that they are labelled "The Bible", you are welcome to that belief. Mormons don't share it.
Since the Mormon church holds the copyright to the other three books they consider scripture, the Mormon church controls the translation of those scriptures. Thus there is no issue of those being "translated correctly".
