Interesting article on that matter:

You should decide which is best regarding its content, but the language in particualar to show you an example:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page

Before the domain seams to be the standard and I would recommend it!

Good luck!

Google just announced New markup for multilingual content. This should make it easier for multi-language sites to deal with translated versions of their website.
