What would you recommend as a URL structure for setting up a multilingual site when optimizing for SEO?

I'm thinking:

www.yoursite.com/en/some-category/some-article/
www.yoursite.com/sv/en-kategori/en-artikel/ (Swedish)

Or would you prefer creating a subdomain (i.e. sv.yoursite.com) or similar instead?

From what I know it seems easier integrating a /language/ directory when in combination with .htaccess.
