I don't have any reference point between Sao Paulo, Brazil and Lisbon, 
Portugal, but does have an international salary calculator.  
Their comparisons within the US are okay, and at the least you would ahve 
a reference point to check with others.  I arbitrarily put 50,000 as 
current salary for Sao Paulo, and the site decided I would need to make 
38,258 in Lisbon.  They don't list monetary units (I'd hope they are using 
dollars or euros).
