Hello Squarespace experts,

I need some help please on how to translate the "type to search" on the search page on a specific language page which is the DE - German page. I also like to keep the "type to search on the EN page.  🙏

I have read this thread but I know that this applies to one translated page only. 😞

Thank you in advance for your assistance!

Thank you @tuanphan however it still does not work. I am unsure what I did wrong.
This is the code I placed

$(document).ready(function() {
$('body.body-de .sqs-search-page input').attr('placeholder','Zum Suchen tippen');
