So what does steht translate to normally?

"steht" is the third person form of "stehen". So it literally translates to "stands"

The literal translation of the sentence would be "he stands up"

aufstehen = get up

And you can use it in that context as well: "er steht auf" = "he rises from his seat"

Steht translates stand, so the literally translation would be something like "He stands up"
