There is an iPhone/Touch/Pad version that has the DS translation but also has atrocious load times and framerate issues. Yep, framerate issues. There is absolutely no reason to get this one.
The DS version is completely re-translated and all of the sentences are nice and perfect and make sense, and a whole lot of the items are renamed. This is the best version with the clearest and most defined graphics and different control schemes, etc. - unfortunately, it's also on the smallest screen and on a handheld. If you have no problems with that, then this is the version to get unless...
... you don't mind the rough translation or the slightly longer (though not atrociously bad) load times, in which case the PS1 version might be better to get because a) it's yours probably for life (or until Sony decides to stop supporting anything playing PS1 games - unlikely, from what I understand it's cheap and it's all emulation at this point) and b) you can both play it on the go on a PSP/Vita and on a PS3.
EDIT: I'm going to admit something that the mods aren't going to like - I have a modified PSP and I have (note the past tense) played a pirated version of Chrono Trigger on it. I have bought the DS version, so don't go nuts on me, but the load times on that were not good, but not bad, i.e. very much playable. I wouldn't think that the PSN version would be any different in terms of load times since they're both, presumably, taken straight off of the CD./EDIT
The SNES version is likely to go kaput soon, it's only good as a collector sort of thing, and there is no reason to buy the PS1 disc when you can get the PS1 version as a download for both your PS1 and PSP/Vita.
