I use "encharge" to mean "put in charge of; entrust with a responsibility." I speak pretty fluent Spanish, and the first time I used it was by accident -- I assumed there was an English cognate to encargar, because there should be one. (I suppose the English word "charge" can be used to mean this, but this word has other, more common meanings, so it sounds funny to use it in this way).
