The only current noun entry is for Vomblattsingen, which is misleading. As the verb entries show, sightreading E>D also means playing from a score or interpreting musical notation.

For D>E, there is also a separate word sightsinging, which is useful for German speakers to know.

Also, the alternate spellings of sightread(-ing, -er) are all missing and should be added to all entries in this word group (including the existing verb entries). I don't use a hyphen myself, and I feel like I see this without a hyphen more often than not; I suspect the hyphenated spelling may be more typical in BE.

I don't know whether Vomblattspielen is really the preferred way to say this, but since LEO already had Vomblattsingen, I assumed it's at least a possible option and did not try to collect example for it separately.

I suspect there should perhaps also be an entry for

sight-reading (also:) sightreading, sight reading - das Vomblattlesen (auch:) Vom-Blatt-Lesen

but I didn't feel like collecting another whole round of examples for that either.

In a previous thread, Peter {de} had already suggested prima vista for the German side; I also did not collect examples for that, but if it's fairly widespread, it might also be good to add

sight-reading (also:) sightreading, sight reading - das Prima-Vista-Spiel
sight-reading (also:) sightreading, sight reading - das Prima-Vista-Spielen

However, that might be better translated as 'playing at sight'; I would also be fine with that.
