Students sometimes use Google Translate as a proxy to get around web filters. This is especially tricky to monitor, because you can't just blacklist translate.google.com.

So, until we have time to integrate Google Translate into our dynamic blacklist, a quick and clever solution is to block the translate by URL feature. You can do this by harnessing the power of wildcards and adding this single line to your organization's custom blacklist.

translate.google.com/*&u=

Bam, the rest of Google Translate will work, except the translate by URL feature. Students will need to find another way to see what pornhub.com looks like in Croatian.
