匠,

Three cobblers with their wits combined equal Zhuge Liang, the master mind.

解释 ( paraphrase )
三个补鞋子的皮匠凑在一起,智谋能赶得上一个诸葛亮。诸葛亮是三国时代蜀国的成像,足智多谋。
这条谚语告诉我们:人多智慧多,办法多,计谋多。

This proverb calls our attention to the wisdom which resides in ordinary people.

诸葛亮:三国时期蜀国的丞相,著名的政治家和战略家。
            A famous statesman and strategist, the prime minister of the State of  Shu (shǔ guó               蜀国) (221—263) during the Three Kingdoms period (sān guó三国) (220—280).

臭皮匠:过去把皮匠一类职业的人看得很低贱,所以又这样的说法。
            Cobbling was considered a very humble occupation.

顶:赶得上,相当。
      To match, equal.
