Seems like the ls output is different from expected for some reason. If
you type something like this:

     ls -l apps/lang/s*

what is the output of that? It should create a list like this:

     -rw-r--r-- 1 Name None 3127 Feb 24 10:14 apps/lang/slovenscina.lng
     -rw-r--r-- 1 Name None 9349 Feb 24 10:14 apps/lang/svenska.lng

but in your case, there seem to be an extra space column before the
size. Maybe your user name ("Name" in the above) contains a space? Don't
know if that's possible though... If it is, this should work as expected:

     ls -ln apps/lang/* | awk '{print $5}' | sort -n | tail -1
