Translation:It is weak.

This link explains it well ... http://www.frenchtoday.com/blog/cest-versus-il-elle-est ... basically "he is + noun" => c'est ... but here 'faible' is an adjective, not a noun, so it cannot be "he is ...", it has to translate as "it is ..."
So "he is a man" => 'c'est un homme' since 'man' is a noun, but "he is weak" => 'il est faible' since 'faible' is an adjective, as an example.
This was a tough one for me too but reading the above link (and printing out their PDF cheat sheet) finally made it clear.
