"Vice versa," according to MW's 10th Collegiate, has been firmly entrenched
as an *English* term since 1601. You can use it. People know it. It *is*
plain old English.

(By the way, the word "round", as in "the other way round" comes from the
Latin word "rotundus." The word "way" comes from the Latin "vehere.")
