What programming language is good for this type of software?
I want to make a desktop client for google translator.
Assuming the software must have a user-friendly interface and must be very stable, what programming language do you recommend?

What operating systems will you be targeting?
I no longer wish to be associated with this site.

Windows XP, Vista and 7

(There's no need to be 100% portable (however it's an advantage) but at least it should have one setup file that does all the work...)
I prefer there is no need to things like .NET Framework
and installing extra DLL's etc...

From looking at the provided API, choice of language is irrelevant.
Your constraints eliminate Perl and anything .NET based. I think you can bundle the Java JRE with your application, so Java should still be in the running. Someone better at Java than me should talk about how sensible that is. Python is also in the running, with py2exe. And then there's various other languages that compile to native binaries.
So you aren't exactly restricted or pointed to one language. Then, the more important question becomes, what languages are you proficient with? What languages do you have experience with? How much programming experience do you have?
When you ask a question, be prepared to tell us: what have you tried? If you think you don't need to try anything, we will never be interested in helping you. If you agree with the link, and you refuse to answer that question, you are being a hypocrite.
Need help with broken code? Your question should be like a good bug report: (1) It has the smallest number of steps to reproduce the problem you see (2) It tells us precisely what you expected to see and (3) It tells us what you saw and how it differed from what you expected. We need all three to help you.
Want better answers? Tell us what you Googled for and what steps you took to answer your own question.

Thanks for your reply Oler1s,

I really like to be able to make it using VB6 because the program must have a simple desktop interface and I don't know how to make a GUI with other languages.
What I want is almost exactly like this:
Please help me.

I will suggest you to use java because it is most secure language
but it is not quite easy som you can also use .net it will provide you client-server architechture and it is easy more than java.

Security is a function of the programmer who built the application, not a function of the language.

Well if you know PHP you can use the same for the client side software development.
