I think, in English we would say "l am in front of you ".. "before you " does not sound correct.
I guess it depends on whether you think of the position in the line as a physical or temporal place.
We can say both in English too. Agree, if the queue is a physical line, much loved apparently in some parts of the English speaking world, “in front” more likely used. However, if the “queue” is more dispersed, “before” is frequently used.
