Radiation emission from a spherically distributed charge, undergoing simultaneously translational and rotational motion, is studied. The angular velocity is assumed to be proportional to the translational velocity of the center of mass. It is shown that in this case the spectral-angular distribution of the radiation can be represented as a product of the spectralangular distribution of the radiation of a point charge by the form factor, which depends on the method employed to distribute the charge and take into account its intrinsic rotation. As an example, synchrotron radiation from a rotating charge distributed over a sphere is investigated.
