So far I couldn't figure out how to rename a customizer control. I can rename sections, but cannot find a way to controls. I would like to rename the default Tagline control to Site Description.

Any idea?

I got it:

$wp_customize->get_control('blogdescription')->label = esc_html__( 'Site Description', 'textdomain' );
