Is it OK for SEO to remove 10 of 16 translations of our site in subdirectories?

Our website has 16 different languages, each in a subdirectory. hreflang is not implemented.

We are now trying to redesign the website and we want 6 languages to be active. The rest of the languages would no longer be supported.

Is it okay to remove 10 other languages? If we remove them, how would it affect SEO? I'm not sure how search engines index multilingual websites.
