We provide two methods to construct zero-range processes with superlinear rates on Zd. In the first method these rates can grow very fast, if either the dynamics and the initial distribution are translation invariant or if only nearest neighbour translation invariant jumps are permitted, in the one-dimensional lattice. In the second method the rates cannot grow as fast but more general dynamics are allowed.
