English term or phrase: reverse order
It seems like a simple enough phrase, but it doesn't come up in any of the Kudoz translation sections. If we count off the people on a list in "reverse" order, we start with the "Z's" and end with the "A's". Is it just "orden contrario"?

Notes to answerer
Asker: Yes; that seems like the best and obvious answer, pero yo, por lingüisticamente ingenuo, no la supe. Hace rato tuve que traducir "reverse the order" y salió "Invertir el orden". Así que "orden inverso" es perfecto. Gracias.
