You will need to install and use a script to do it.

  1. In your spreadsheet, select Tools > Script Gallery > Insert....
  2. Search for reverse. You should see String.reverse().
  3. Click Install, then Authorize.
  4. Close the Script Gallery.

To use the script, type =reverse(A1) where A1 is the cell with the text you want to reverse.
