My Cv spoke for itself - shouldn't it be "speaks for itself" to match your French translation?

My Cv spoke for itself - shouldn't it be "speaks for itself" to match your French translation?

In this paragraph, the English sentence was "My CV SPOKE for itself" but the French was in the present tense.  Mon CV parle de lui-même. Is this a mistake or am I missing something?
