Unable to change checkout placeholder text

I am using woocommerce with storefront and on the checkout the placeholder text for address 1 is “street name” and address 2 is “apartment number”.

In my country it should be the opposite, or all in one field.

I have tried changing this with code snippets I found online. They change the placeholder but only for a split second while the page is loading. After that they change back to the default values


add_filter( ‘woocommerce_checkout_fields’ ‘override_billing_checkout_fields’, 10, 1 );

function override_billing_checkout_fields( $fields ) {
$fields[‘billing’][‘billing_address_1’][‘placeholder’] = ‘Address line 1’;
$fields[‘billing’][‘billing_address_2’][‘placeholder’] = ‘Address line 2’;

$fields[‘Shipping’][‘shipping_address_1’][‘placeholder’] = ‘Address line 1’;
$fields[‘Shipping’][‘shipping_address_2’][‘placeholder’] = ‘Address line 2’;
return $fields;

add_filter( ‘woocommerce_default_address_fields’, ‘uwc_new_address_one_placeholder’, 1 );

function uwc_new_address_one_placeholder( $fields ) {
$address_fields[‘address_1’][‘placeholder’] = ‘Address line 1’;
$address_fields[‘address_2’][‘placeholder’] = ‘Address line 2’;
return $address_fields;
