I’ve found that google translate can be used as a proxy, just type an internet address in its box, and, also if you have blocked that certain site, it’ll be showed.
Now, i found out this thing.
When, for example, you translate a word, the internet address appears like that:
When you translate a whole site, it’s like that:
Now, i don’t want to block the entire address (translate.google.com) but the part that appear when you translate a site only.
I’ve added in the black list of the pcwrt this address:
but this don’t work.
How can i do? It’s possible to block just a part of an internet address?
Blocking a URL path is only possible for unencrypted sites, i.e., the URL that starts with http://…, not https://…
For encrypted sites, the router only sees the domain name, not the path following the domain name. Therefore, it cannot block a sub-section of a domain.
That said, you can block translate.googleusercontent.com instead of translate.google.com. That’ll block translation of sites while allowing translation of words.
Thank you so much!
