"Raison d'être" is a phrase used to purpose of something (or someone), it's reason to be. It was borrowed from French.
How would you translate it to your language?
In Polish it's racja bytu.
Edit: also powód istnienia (less sophisticated)
cel życia for active agents capable of thought (humans and possibly robots, etc. ).
