Help with a proxy server setup choice

Hello,
I currently control some internet access via a cheat of sorts for specific users on our network.  Using group policies in active directory, I have setup a policy that forces users to hit a false proxy for non "Intranet" pages.  Basically, I send them to 0.0.0.0 to prevent internet access to computers in a manufacturing environment who use shared workstations.

My current dilemma is that we are starting to utilize some Google services and i need to open up internet access, specifically to translate.google.com

In my current situation, would it make sense to setup an actual proxy server to allow this?

Does anyone have a recommendation?

In the near future, we will be upgrading our environment so that our web filter will be able to handle these requests without the need for the work around.  I intend for this to be a short term solution.

Any help appreciated.

Yes, I think a proxy server would be very appropriate in this situation.
I'd suggest Squid, as having the advantage that it runs well in a Windows environment, cost (free), and very fine control over it's behaviour.
