What part of it don't you understand?
basically you can split your fire at any ships you can see, but if there is a ship that is closer to you you must prioritise your shooting at that vessel.
You might want to elaborate on target priority a little Marshall Validus; that being that you need to pass ald test to shoot at farther target or else have to shoot the closer one with the firepower that was diverted...

It just means that you can shoot at one ship in your left fire arc and another in your right- obviously you can't have a ship in two different fire arcs, but it would be a bit crap to only let you shoot at one ship and ignore any others.
You're also allowed to shoot different ships with more than one weapon- so with a lunar class cruiser with weapons batteries and lances on each side, you could shoot at an enemy cruiser with the weapons bettery and say an escort squadron with the lances.
You cannot divide the strength of a weapons system between two ships (ie str3 against 2 different cruisers with your lunar class) unless you have a necron fleet.
If I've overlooked anything then just say so. Hopefully that explained everything you could have meant.
