Stephen Wolfram explains clearly how a Computational language differs from a Programming language

A computational language tries to intrinsically be able to talk about whatever one might think about in a computational way—while a programming language is set up to intrinsically talk only about things one can directly program a computer to do. So for example, a computational language can intrinsically talk about things in the real world—like the planet Mars or New York City or a chocolate chip cookie. A programming language can intrinsically talk only about abstract data structures in a computer.
A computational language like the Wolfram language maintains high-level expressiveness and readability of pseudocode, while still having everything be precise, complete and immediately executable on a computer.
