There is not really an order because these nat's are between different interfaces (networks). So There is no precedence, all these exist next to each other.
None 'takes first', the will be applied depending on which way the traffic flows.

Ernie is correct, butI think the only exception to that rule is the NAT 0 where source and destination are specified.   NAT 0 is used for specific circumstances where you want certain traffic to bypass NAT all together.   NAT 0 is required for VPN connectivity because the NAT commands are evaluated before the crypto map match commands.
