Constraint Violating Yak Guru

I have a string in Hebrew that is reversed such as 'tac god (435)'
I want the result to be 'cat dog (435)'
I want it to reverse only the chars and not the numbers.

How can this be done?

If you can find a consistent separator, then you can do like shown below. In the example below, I am using '(' as the separator. It needs a little refinement - the space before the '(' is also part of the reverse in this example:
declare @x varchar(32) = 'tac god (435)';
select reverse(left(@x,charindex('(',@x+'(')-1)) 
	+ stuff(@x,1,charindex('(',@x+'(')-1,'');
