Let's start with 話されている "are spoken".

We'll use that as a relative clause to modify 言語 "language":

話されている言語
languages that are spoken

And we'll add 最も "most":

最も話されている言語
languages that are spoken the most
= the [most spoken] languages

And 世界で to make the scope "in the world":

世界で最も話されている言語
the most spoken languages in the world

Last, we insert 10の to say how many of the most spoken languages:

世界で最も話されている10の言語
the ten most spoken languages in the world

    I just loved the way you constructed the sentence block by block! You would make a great teacher (unless you already are lol) Oct 14, 2013 at 19:50

I would probably say one of

話者数上位10言語
話者数による世界トップ10言語
世界で最も話されている言語の上位10言語
