    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:

    https://translate.google.com/#view=home&op=translate&sl=it&tl=en&text=ciao

    When you translate a whole site, it’s like that:

    https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=en&tl=it&u=pcwrt.com

    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:

    “translate.google.com/translate?”

    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.
