is it possible to localize a control by it's id?

I know that i can localize a textbox with a localization-object like this:
"de-DE": {
"textbox": {
"placeholder": "Suchen ..."
This works fine. 
But what if i have multiple textboxes?

Every textbox has the same placeholder text.

Can i somehow access each textbox via id in the localization-object?

I tried to do it like this:

"textbox.id['inputSearch']": {
"placeholder": "Suchen ..."
But this does not seem to work.

Is there a way to set the localization for each control individually.

Thank you.

Hi Tobias, 

Thank you for using Syncfusion products. 

We can localize the place holder value of the Textbox component for the specific culture globally not for the individual component. So, we have achieved your requirement as the work around by defined the required placeholder values for the specific culture (“de-DE“) in the localization object. After that, we have assigned the required placeholder value to the specific text box placeholder property as like in the below code example. 

<div class="row"> 
    <div class="col-xs-6 col-sm-6 col-lg-6 col-md-6"> 
        <ejs-textbox [placeholder]="placeholder" floatLabelType="Auto" locale="de-DE"></ejs-textbox> 
    <div class="col-xs-6 col-sm-6 col-lg-6 col-md-6"> 
        <ejs-textbox [placeholder]="placeholder2" locale="de-DE" floatLabelType="Auto"></ejs-textbox> 
    <div class="col-xs-6 col-sm-6 col-lg-6 col-md-6"> 
        <ejs-textbox placeholder="Last Name" floatLabelType="Auto"></ejs-textbox> 

export class DefaultTextboxController { 
    placeHolder: object = { 
        "de-DE": { 
            name: "Suchen ...", 
            FirstName: "Vorname" 
    public placeholder = this.placeHolder["de-DE"].name; 
    public placeholder2 = this.placeHolder["de-DE"].FirstName; 

Please check the sample from the below link.
