First time here, have looked around and there is TONS of wonderful, very useful information.
I recently submitted an audition and the studio has invited me over for a callback! However, they have said that besides the sides, there will also be a dubbing test. This is my first audition for this type of gig and I have no idea how to prepare (besides the obvious voice-matching practice) since I cannot find any information anywhere on dubbing tests. Does anyone have any experience they would like to share? I would absolutely appreciate it.

Congratulations on your callback!
Dubbing is fundamentally about rhythm and timing. There are a few different techniques that may be utilized depending on the studio, but a popular one is where they will play three beeps and you start your line where the imaginary fourth beep would be. It does require a bit of multitasking as you have to look at the script and the screen at the same time, essentially. They'll probably preview the line in its original language first, during which you can get a feel for how fast or slow you'll need to say the line.
It's a pretty technical skill, so don't stress out if you don't nail it right away. If nothing else, focus most on the acting, because timing can be refined later. Good luck!
