    I suggest you to not override this kind of stuff. Editors can leave with default order. Jun 19, 2017 at 16:56

You can use setting ContentEditor.SortLanguages to manually sort them in content tree.

          Indicates whether the Content Editor show languages in the language selection dropdown
          in the same order as /sitecore/system/Languages child items.
          Default value: false

<setting name="ContentEditor.SortLanguages" value="true" />
