Abstract: We prove for random variables with values in the space of cadlag functions - endowed with the supremum metric - that convergence in law is equivalent to nonstandard constructions of internal -cadlag processes, which represent up to an infinitesimal error the limit process. It is not required that the limit process is concentrated on the space , so that the theory is applicable to a wider class of limit processes as e.g. to Poisson processes or Gaussian processes. If we consider in the Skorokhod metric - instead of the supremum metric - we obtain a corresponding equivalence to constructions of internal processes with -separated jumps. We apply these results to functional central limit theorems.
