Find the theme that you want to edit and click Customize.
You can find the cart settings for your theme in either the Theme settings tab, or the Sections tab. First, click Theme settings, and look to see if your theme’s cart settings are available there:
If your theme does not have a cart section in Theme settings, then click Sections. To access your cart settings, in the theme preview, navigate to your cart page by clicking on the header cart icon.

In your theme’s cart settings, check Enable order notes.

From your Shopify admin, go to Online Store > Themes.
Find the theme that you want to edit, and then click Actions > Edit languages.
In the Filter translations box, type Special instructions to show the order notes translation:
