Is your project is asp.net web application or is it a Desktop application. If its webapplication you can use javascript for Google map.

I am not sure if that is possible, You need to use browser control in your winforms application for that.

It should be, When I've created the API key it asks me if im going to use it in a desktop app or for web service.. These are the sample files:

Hi,
Please add the Google.Apis.Translate.v2.dll  as reference to your project and below is the VB code for google translate Api.

Imports System.Collections.Generic
Imports System.ComponentModel
Imports Google.Apis.Samples.Helper
Imports Google.Apis.Translate.v2
Imports Google.Apis.Translate.v2.Data
Imports TranslationsResource = Google.Apis.Translate.v2.Data.TranslationsResource
Namespace Translate.TranslateText
      Friend Class Program
            <Description("input")> _
            Public Class TranslateInput
                  <Description("text to translate")> _
                  Public SourceText As String = "Who ate my candy?"
                  <Description("target language")> _
                  Public TargetLanguage As String = "fr"
            End Class
            <STAThread> _
            Private Shared Sub Main(args As String())
                  ' Initialize this sample.      
                  CommandLine.EnableExceptionHandling()
                  CommandLine.DisplayGoogleSampleHeader("Translate Sample")
                  ' Ask for the user input.              TranslateInput input = CommandLine.CreateClassFromUserinput<TranslateInput>(); // Create the service.              
                  Dim service = New TranslateService() With { _
                        Key .Key = ClientCredentials.ApiKey _
                  }
                  CommandLine.WriteAction("Translating to '" + input.TargetLanguage & "' ...")
                  Dim srcText As String() = New () {"Hello world!", input.SourceText}
                  Dim response As TranslationsListResponse = service.Translations.List(srcText, input.TargetLanguage).Fetch()
                  Dim translations = New List(Of String)()
                  For Each translation As TranslationsResource In response.Translations
                        translations.Add(translation.TranslatedText)
                        CommandLine.WriteResult("translation", translation.TranslatedText)
                  Next
                  ' Translate the text (back) to english.        
                  CommandLine.WriteAction("Translating to english ...")
                  response = service.Translations.List(translations, "en").Fetch()
                  For Each translation As TranslationsResource In response.Translations
                        CommandLine.WriteResult("translation", translation.TranslatedText)
                  Next
                  ' ...and we are done.          
                  CommandLine.PressAnyKeyToExit()
            End Sub
      End Class
