How to block the vulnerability to unblock blocked websites in content filtering with translator

Greetings
 
In our company we use Meraki MX100 firewall. In the content filtering section, we have several web pages which we want to be blocked for users, however, there is a vulnerability to this by using Google translator. Just enter the URL in the translator and automatically, on the right side of the translator, the URL appears in blue with a redirection symbol, which by clicking on it, you are directed to the web page that is blocked without any impediment, bypassing the content filtering. This looks like this: https://www-webpage-com.translate.goog/path/
 
How can we block this bypass in our MX100? 
 
Thanks

Have you tried blocking : *.translate.goog ?

 

This 'should' still allow translate.goog but not permitting user to use google translate as a proxy. 

 

I haven't tested this on my end.

And then there is the Google Cache system, Wayback Machine, private VPNs, ...
