The spelling is correct. However ...
I generally attempt to avoid "latinization" in documentation,
if at all possible. Depending on the context, you might consider
substituting "Conversely," or "the reverse order." Whatever is
an appropirate English equivalent for the meaning you seek to convey.
More words, perhaps, but what we're striving for is the greater clarity
and ease of understanding.
The same holds true for the word "via," I would suggest. "Through"
is often a superior handling.
