You will first meet the elves during Glyndwr’s questline. During this side quest, you will need to gift Glyndwr a bow. Once that is done, you can help him train at the ruins. Finally, he will take you to the Sacred Arbor. This is where the Elvish language is useful. Don’t worry, it is not required to complete Glyndwr’s quest.

How to get the Woodland Wordsmith Specialization in Dragon’s Dogma 2

To unlock Woodland Wordsmith, you need to get the Woodland Wordsmith’s Tome and give it to your Main Pawn so they can act as a translator. To obtain the tome, raise your affinity with any of the Elves in Sacred Arbor. To do this, choose the give gift option when speaking to an Elf. Almost all elves love flowers. You can craft a bunch of flowers using flowers and Morningtide.

Give some gifts and then rest at the inn. Repeat this process for a few days and then the NPC should give you the tome to learn from.

With the Woodland Wordsmith Specialization on your Pawn, you can send them into the Rift to aid other players as a translator. Many will give your Pawn gifts for knowing this specialization.
