    The LA always blocked it, mainly because of potential use a proxy, I'm not keen to unblock, what's your thoughts/experiences?

    One of the first ports of calls for kids when it is allowed. However there are ways to allow the text based translation but still block the page translation with Bloxx

    Smoothwall seems to block the text fine.

    Yup but you'd want to allow the text but deny the site translations?

    e.g. The following allows kids to circumvent a block if one existed on edugeek.net http://translate.google.com/translat...ww.edugeek.net
